Episode 9: A Day at the Museum

Whoa! In this episode, we give you a behind-the-scenes tour of how art ends up in museum collections and what's involved in getting it on the gallery walls. Jeff talks with Jennifer Dasal, the NC Museum of Art's associate curator of contemporary art and the creator and host of the Art Curious podcast. But wait, there's more! Jeff also quizzes Brad Johnson, the exhibition designer at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University in Durham, NC. 

Feeling greedy? OK. Beverly McIver makes a return visit to discuss one of her former art students, Lamar Whidbee. Lamar is graduating with his MFA at UNC Chapel Hill. His work can be seen in the current MFA exhibition, Time Will Tell, at the Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill. Our very own Jeff Bell curated the exhibition! Whew!
