The Peale Founder's Day Celebration

A sign is posted in the Peale courtyard saying "Happy Birthday to the Peale - Join us for our Founder's Day Celebration Sunday, August 15th at 3 pm SLT - Click for Details."  8 balloons are beside the sign.  Fun and colorful strips hang from a cord by the balloons.  In front of the strips is a round table with a two-tier cake in front of it.  Another set of 8 balloons is on the other side of the strips.

Sunday, August 15

3 p.m. SLT/Pacific -- 6 p.m. ET

The Peale Museum

Join us on The Peale Museum island for a screening of the Founder's Day event to celebrate the 1 year birthday of the Peale in Second Life, and the 207th birthday of the physical Peale, located in Baltimore, Maryland. This live broadcast will be "projected" into the courtyard of the Virtual Peale, providing a portal into the physical Peale. Meet RL artists, staff and partners from the Peale, and see the progress of the ongoing restoration of the oldest museum building in America, established in 1814 by artist Rembrandt Peale. The hour-long event will also feature a musical performance by Scott Patterson for the Proximity Project, a history and demonstration of silhouette cutting with Lauren Muney, and a look back at Out Of The Blocks with Aaron Henkin.

The event includes live human generated captions and American Sign Language interpretation. For more information about transcripts, captioning, and other accessibility resources, please visit the Peale's accessibility page. If you have any additional accommodation requests ahead of time, questions or feedback about access, please contact our Accessibility Manager Robin Marquis at
