SPRINGFIELD — An exhibition of more than 70 images by photographer Annie Leibovitz is set to open at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
The exhibition, titled "Pilgrimage," features images of famous places and objects that Leibovitz captured on her travels.
They include Yellowstone National Park, Elvis Presley's motorcycle and Emily Dickinson's only surviving dress.
According to a news release from the Springfield museum, Lincoln plays a major role in the exhibition.
