  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. For more information contact Jim Zimmer at 217-782-7440.
 
  8:00PM n/a Hair   Springfield Theatre Centre (STC)'s fourth production of the season, "Hair", will open at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 10 at the Hoogland Center for the Arts, 420 S. Sixth St., Springfield and will run January 10- 12 and 17-19. Performances begin at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $15 for children/seniors and $18 for adults. "Hair" tells the story of the "tribe," a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription in the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents (and conservative America) to serve in Vietnam, compromising his pacifistic principles and risking his life. STC's production of "Hair" is rated R for adult content, language and nudity. Viewer discretion is advised. Tickets for "Hair" are available by calling the box office at 217-523-2787 or online at www.hcfta.org.
