  All Day Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage   Annie Leibovitz achieved her status as one of America's great photographers with unforgettable images of celebrities from John Lennon to Johnny Depp. But more recently, Leibovitz has trained her camera on famous places and objects, revealing more of herself in the process. "Pilgrimage," an exhibition of more than 70 of these stunning photographs from the Smithsonian American Art Museum's collection, opens at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum on Feb. 8, 2014, and runs through Aug. 31. Visitors will see the landscapes that captured Leibovitz's imagination: Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park, a New Mexico mesa. They can scrutinize her close-ups of objects like Emily Dickinson's only surviving dress, Elvis Presley's motorcycle and a bullet hole put in a target by Annie Oakley. Abraham Lincoln plays a major role in "Pilgrimage." Leibovitz photographed the stovepipe hat and the gloves Lincoln had with him on the night of his assassination, as well as a handwritten copy of the Gettysburg Address, photographic negatives of Lincoln and the Lincoln Memorial. Her photos of the bloodstained gloves were taken at the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. Access to the exhibition will be free with paid admission to the presidential museum. The Leibovitz photographs will be complemented by elements from the Lincoln Presidential Library's own collections, selected by Mary Michals. The museum will also present a reading of Virginia Woolf's essay "A Room of One's Own" and selections from the play "The Belle of Amherst," both directed by Phil Funkenbusch. Also on the schedule: a screening of the Marilyn Monroe thriller "Niagara."

  8:00AM 4:00PM Illinois Prairie Pastel Society Exhibit   The James S. Murray Gallery at Lincoln Land Community College will feature the annual membership show of the Illinois Prairie Pastel Society June 9 through July 29. The exhibit is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the gallery located on the second floor of Menard Hall at the LLCC-Springfield campus, 5250 Shepherd Road. In 2006, six Springfield pastel artists joined together to form the Springfield Area Pastelists. By 2009, the group had grown to 20 members and formally organized as the Illinois Prairie Pastel Society, establishing bylaws and affiliating with the International Association of Pastel Societies. Currently the society has more than 40 members, most of whom are located in the central Illinois area. Many of the members meet weekly to paint at the Springfield Art Association. The group's mission includes promoting and fostering creative painting with pastels, in addition to encouraging pastel artists in their growth and success. Workshops are held each year presented by local members and others who are nationally or internationally known.
