You don't have to be an art expert to enjoy Jennifer Dasal's ArtCurious podcasts. We're lucky that she's our own NC Museum of Art's contemporary arts curator.  She joins us Wednesday, July 26, at 7 pm with a talk on "Thieves, Forgers, and The Smiling Woman: The Mona Lisa and the Greatest Crime in Art", one of her previous podcasts.  Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa is the most famous and recognizable work of art in the entire world. It is iconic, incredible, and unforgettable-- but is the work on view in Paris's Louvre Museum today the real deal? This question has intrigued Dasal for nearly two decades. Join Dasal as she uncovers the story of the Mona Lisa from its creation in the 16th century through its 1911 theft and to its current status as untouchable superstar, breaking down the strange stories and rumors swirling around it.
