  All Day On the Prairie   Sept. 12 – Oct. 4: On the Prairie: Bronzes by Marshall Mitchell. Marshall Mitchell was an artist all of his life (1917 – 2001). He spent most of that life here in Springfield and came to national prominence as a bronze sculptor from the 1970s through today. A selection of his works, owned by Springfield collectors, businesses like Brandt and Egizii Electric and family members, will be on display in the M.G. Nelson Family Gallery at the Springfield Art Association. Included in this exhibition are selections from his southwestern landscapes, cows series, and rooster series. More of Mr. Hindley's work can be found at www.hindleyfineart.org. On the Prairie will be on view in the M. G. Nelson Family Gallery at the Springfield Art Association from Friday, Sept. 12 through Saturday, Oct. 4, 2013. We invite the public to join us for the opening reception on Saturday, Sept. 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
 
  8:00PM 10:00PM Friday Night Star Party   The University of Illinois Springfield's popular Friday Night Star Parties will resume the Friday after Labor Day and run through the end of October. Those dates include: Sept. 5, 12, 19, and 26 and Oct, 3, 10, 17, and 24. Friday Night Star Parties are held from 8 to 10 p.m., weather permitting, at the UIS observatory on the roof of Brookens Library. Star Parties are hosted by Dr. John C. Martin, associate professor of Astronomy/Physics. The observatory's telescopes will be used to view a number of celestial objects, including the Moon, when visible; the Ring Nebula; globular star clusters M13 and M15; and other double stars and star clusters. A typical Star Party begins with a presentation as visitors ascend the stairs to the observatory, learning about galaxies, the sun and stars along the way. On the roof observation deck visitors are invited to view the skies through telescopes and ask questions. Participants are welcome to arrive and leave as they wish between 8 and 10 p.m. Friday Night Star Parties are free and open to the public. Reservations are not required and groups are encouraged to attend. The entrance to the campus observatory is located outside Brookens Library on the southeast corner of the building. Star Parties may be canceled for cloudy weather. Questions about whether the weather is suitable for viewing should be directed to 217/206-8342 at 7 p.m. on the evening of the Star Party. Participants may also follow the UIS Observatory on Twitter (@UISObservatory) for updates.
