  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.
 
  8:00AM n/a Hedwig and the Angry Inch   Roxy Theatricals presents Hedwig and the Angry Inch Jan. 17-18, 23-25, 30-31 and Feb. 1 at The Legacy Theatre 101 E. Lawrence, Springfield, IL 62701. Only 75 seats per performance. There may only be a limited number of seats or standing-room tickets available at the door beginning at 7 p.m. A critically acclaimed off-Broadway rock musical which tells the story of the "internationally ignored song stylist," Hedwig, a gender-bending young East German lad who undergoes a botched sex change operation in a bid to emigrate to America. In her latest appearance in a string of underground nightclubs, Hedwig takes to the stage with her band, "The Angry Inch," to tell her story of love, loss and identity. Both heartfelt and inherently comedic, Hedwig never fails to be thought-provoking. Hedwig manages to pay tribute to a small pantheon of rockers, from David Bowie to Lou Reed to Iggy Pop. Advance tickets are $18. Tickets day of show are $25 general admission and limited.
