About Jennifer

Jennifer Dasal is an art historian, media personality, and author. Currently, she serves as Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA) with responsibilities ranging from exhibition planning and execution, to public lectures and tours, to critical writing. Her professional expertise includes modern and contemporary art (20th-21st centuries), with particular interest in women artists and Asian art, and research, training and expertise in early Modern Art (18th-19th centuries) and Renaissance Art (15th-16th centuries).

In 2016, her experience led her to create and host the ArtCurious podcast (www.artcuriouspodcast.com), an internationally popular, bi-weekly series exploring “the unexpected, the slightly odd, and the strangely wonderful in art history.” The show was honored as a PC Magazine Best Podcast of the Year in 2018 and 2019 and was selected as a Best History Podcast of 2019 by O, the Oprah Magazine. In September 2020, she released her first book, ArtCurious: Stories of the Unexpected, Slightly Odd, and Strangely Wonderful in Art History, published by Penguin Books. Publishers Weekly proclaimed the book an “offbeat and informative outing” in a June 2020 starred review.

She earned a BA in art history from the University of California, Davis and an MA in art history from the University of Notre Dame, as well as completing PhD art history coursework at the Pennsylvania State University. Prior to joining NCMA in 2008, she was the curatorial assistant to the curator of Western art at the Snite Museum, University of Notre Dame, and at the Richard L. Nelson Art Gallery, University of California, Davis. Additionally, she has worked in commercial art galleries and is a member of the Association of Art Museum Curators and the American Alliance of Museums.


About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

After witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, What Women Create, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. Check out my best-selling book with HarperCollins Leadership, Artpreneur, how to make money from your creativity, wherever books are sold. When I’m not in the studio, I split my time between New York City and a farmhouse in the country.
