Springfield Art Association launches online exhibit
"Hidden in Plain Sight: The Material World of Early Springfield"

SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Art Association has launched a digital version of last fall’s popular temporary exhibition “Hidden in Plain Sight: The Material Life of Early Springfield” at  

The exhibition explores the architecture, archaeology, fine arts, and decorative arts of Springfield from the 1820s-1850s. The website features images of the objects and photographs displayed in the physical exhibition, along with a new section which compiles existing images of antebellum Springfield citizens. The Springfield Art Association is currently working with the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, the Elijah Iles House, the Illinois State Museum, and the Illinois State Historical Society to add entries in an effort to make the website a comprehensive digital database of early Springfield material culture. Anyone wishing to include an example of antebellum Springfield architecture, art, archaeology, or decorative arts is encouraged to email Erika Holst at

This website is supported by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council.
