  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.

  7:00PM n/a Christmas in Venice   They are back - for their first Christmas concert outside California! Please bring a coat for the Salvation Army Coats for Kids annual campaign. Trying to describe the music of the band Venice is like trying to describe a perfect sunset or the feeling of first love. It transcends words. Mixing the rock and roll of 70s Aerosmith with the storytelling of James Taylor and harmonies reminiscent of the Eagles at their best and with old school arrangements mixed in with brilliant musicanship and remarkable vocals and lyrics that are intelligent and laced with wit, well now you're in the ballpark. The concert will feature familiar Christmas music in the Venice style, some of their own music, and a premiere of material from their new album. The Legacy Theatre, 101 E. Lawrence, Springfield, IL 62701. http://www.atthelegacy.com/
