Last Chance to Explore Palace of Versailles With George Stuart

The last of artist George Stuart’s monologue presentations, If these Walls could Talk: Versailles, is scheduled at the Museum of Ventura County on Monday, February 1, 2010, at 1:30 pm. Learn about the grand architecture of Europe’s most famous palace, once the residence of some of history’s most famous figures.

The George Stuart Historical Figures® of King Louis XIV and of Marie Antoinette with her children are also on view at the Museum through February 28. The one-quarter life-size sculptures are renowned for their expressiveness and intricately detailed costumes.

Monologue seating is limited, so reservations are required. Call (805) 641-1876 ext. 305. Admission for the general public is $15, for museum members $10, and members of the George Stuart Historical Figures® Guild may attend at no charge.

Versailles has been synonymous with elegance in fashion and etiquette since 1682, when Louis XIV made it the showplace of the French monarchy. Today the palace and its grounds remain one of Europe's most visited sites.
