Introducing the George Stuart Audio Project
updated: Jan 08, 2014, 4:11 PM

By Sheldon Brown

The George Stuart Historical Figure® Collection will kick off an exciting new project in 2014, called the George Stuart Audio Project. Its goal is to assemble a comprehensive archive of George Stuart recordings of each Figure in the Museum's collection. This ongoing project will cover almost 400 Historical Figures that George Stuart has created during his lifetime.

The Museum invites you to be a part of the process. In the intimate setting of the Smith Gallery, where the figures are displayed, curator Ariane Karakalos will host 60-minute George Stuart presentations during which the artist will elaborate on approximately 8 to 10 figures from the display while being recorded. As always, attendees have the opportunity to ask questions and contribute comments at the end of the presentation.

The first recording will take place on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 2:00 p.m., during the run of our winter exhibition The Famous & Infamous. Stuart will elaborate on Leif Erickson, Vlado Tepes, Cesare Borgia, Theresa of Avila, Junipero Serra, Marie Antoinette, Countess La Motte, and Madame de Lamballe.

The second recording will follow on Tuesday, February 4, 2014, at which Stuart will cover George III, Napoleon Bonaparte and his two wives Josephine and Marie Louise, Abraham and Mary Lincoln, as well as the Chinese Figures Sun Yat-sen, Chian Kai-shek, Soong May-ling and Mao Zedong.

We cordially invite you to support our archiving efforts and to witness Museum history in the making! Seating will be limited to 30 attendees. Secure your seat now by calling our reservation line at (805) 653-0323 extension 7. Admission is $5.00 for Museum members and $10.00 for the general public per presentation.

The Museum of Ventura County is located at 100 East Main Street in downtown Ventura. Hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Paid events include free admission to the galleries, and the first Sundays of every month are free general admission for the public.
