  8:30AM 5:00PM Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art   Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art brings together historical and contemporary body-based art by over fifty artists from the Illinois State Museum collection. The exhibition emphasizes the power and the range of the narrative and expressive uses of the figure in Midwest art. The artworks were selected to create a better understanding and consideration of different representational styles and the ability of the figure to carry feeling, memory, and experience. They were also selected with an eye toward something fantastic—a heightened sense of the super-real or super-natural—whether through aggressive, expressive form, high-keyed color, inventive graphics, or ambiguous situations. The Museum is open from 8:30-5:00 Monday through Saturday and from 12:00-5:00 on Sunday. Admission is free. Parking is available nearby and the building is ADA accessible.

  6:00PM n/a Christmas Parade- Springfield   Last year was a new beginning for the parade as it moved to the evening, at Santa’s request. Jaycee President, David Pickett said, “It was a logical move, so that the parade would capture the magic of the holiday lights, as well provide a time that families could be together to greet Santa’s first visit of the season.” This years Theme, “Holiday Stories,” will bring to life the many tales and customs associated with this “most wonderful time of the year.” We believe this parade theme will offer parade participants the title page for beautiful floats, music of the season, and stories … old and new,” Pickett added. Naturally, only the real Santa Claus will take his place of honor on a newly created float, crafted for him by the Springfield Jaycees and Springfield’s award winning float team from The Coalition of Rainbow Alliances. Santa will greet parade-goers from a specially lighted replica of his workshop at the North Pole. “Big and bright!” explained CORAL Parade Event Coordinator, Bert Morton, as he described the design that will bring Santa into downtown Springfield on Dec. 7. The Jaycees invite community groups, businesses, governmental entities and area bands to join them in this light show salute to the holidays. The parade will step off from the Horace Mann parking lot a 6:00 p.m., and follow Jefferson Street to Fifth Street. It will follow Fifth street to Capitol Avenue, and make its way to Sixth Street. Filling the downtown with twinkling lights, the parade will turn on Washington Street and disband at Seventh Street.
