Jennifer Dasal 

When: Tue., July 25, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: free

Did Van Gogh really commit suicide? Was Jack the Ripper actually a British painter? What do Warhol and Weegee have in common? And why do Michelangelo's pictures of women look so, well, manly? Such are "the unexpected, the slightly odd, and the strangely wonderful" corners of art history explored in narrative form in ArtCurious, the biweekly podcast by North Carolina Museum of Art contemporary curator Jennifer Dasal. Highly informed but still suitable for curious laypeople who aren't interested in academic criticism, the program has gained enough traction with listeners that Dasal is planning to transition, at the end of this month, to a seasonal format with a new set of episodes dealing with art making during World War II. In the lead-up, she visits Quail Ridge Books on Tuesday to give a talk based on a previous episode, "Thieves, Forgers, and the Smiling Woman: The Mona Lisa and the Greatest Crime in Art," which asks whether the most famous portrait in the Louvre might actually be a forgery. —Brian Howe
