The Whistler House Museum of Art hosts a tour and lecture on Sunday, March 9, 2-4 p.m., at the museum, located at 243 Worthen St., Lowell.

The event is being held in conjunction with the critically-acclaimed exhibit "An American in London: Whistler and the Thames" on view through April 13 at the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover.

The tour will begin in the historic house on Worthen Street, where James McNeill Whistler was born. It will be followed by a talk "Whistlers by the Thames," by Jonathan Shirland, in the museum's Parker Gallery, located at the same address.

The talk relates to the Addison Gallery exhibit, featuring many of Whistler's paintings and etchings of the Thames Rives in London and also highlights the statue of Whistler by Mico Kaufman, located in the adjacent Whistler Park and the statue of Whistler near the Battlesea Bridge in London by Nicholas Dimbleby.
