The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about a new exhibit at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, during their weekly meeting Tuesday at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
Director of Public Relations at the Library, Joe Crain, told Kiwanis members about the new exhibit, called “The State of Sound”, featuring the world of music in Illinois. The exhibit highlights the music and artists that were either native to Illinois, or whose music originated in the state.
Crain said that in addition to the many genres of music featured in the exhibit, almost 150 musical artifacts from Illinois artists or music events connected to the state, are also on display. The exhibit is part of the library and museum thru next January.
Crain also told Kiwanis members that the library is seeing daily attendance start to increase since re-opening following the coronavirus pandemic.
The museum is offering free admission thru June 30th for anyone who’s had at least one COVID vaccine shot.
