SPRINGFIELD – Despite the rainy weather, the art community in Springfield was happy to share work – even if it was on Friday the 13th. Highlights included a juried show, live music and relics from Glenwood’s past. 

During the pandemic, the Second Friday Art Walk in downtown Springfield closed, as did the museums and buildings showcasing art and local history. The Emerald Art Center wasn’t able to display its annual exhibits like the Mayor’s Art Show or its national juried show.  . . .
