Are you an artist in the Central Illinois Area? NPR Illinois is seeking talented, local artists to participate in the 2018 Calendar Art Contest! Artists can use any medium for their works, but your piece must somehow explain some element of the State of Illinois (and hopefully NPR Illinois).   

HOOGLAND CENTER FOR THE ARTS

LBJ and MLK come to life in the Hoogland Center for the Arts' production of 'All The Way' in Springfield, this weekend and next weekend.  The award-winning play gives audiences a view of the inner workings of the Whitehouse shortly after the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the struggle Lyndon B. Johnson faces in passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

We sat down with Rich McCoy who plays LBJ, Tony Young who plays Martin Luther King Jr., and Craig McFarland who plays Hubert Humphrey.
