Gilbert Stuart’s birth to be celebrated

The Gilbert Stuart Museum will mark the birthday of Gilbert Stuart with a “Candlelight Celebration: The five ages of Gilbert Stuart at the Gilbert Stuart Museum,” on Friday, Dec. 4, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The event will feature a tour of the birthplace with five Gilberts of differing ages in residence. A sixyear old Gilbert will greet visitors as they arrive at the museum, and four actors will depict Gilbert at different ages of his life. Visitors will see the museum decorated in its Christmas best, feast on gingerbread and mulled wine and cider, and participate in Gilbert’s birthday celebration.

Reservations must be made by Dec. 1 by calling 294-3001. All calls will be promptly returned. Tickets are $15 per person.
