ART NOW! TAILS FROM THE CRYPT: ANIMAL GHOSTS AND APPARITIONS WITH DR. PAUL KOUDOUNARIS

October 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| Free

As the haunting season nears, ponder ghosts as you haven’t before. Author and occult expert Dr. Paul Koudounaris narrates the history of animal ghosts and apparitions, presenting a slideshow based around fully documented cases. Phantom animals have been known throughout history, and deserve to be as much a part of ghost lore as their human counterparts. Some search for their masters, like Rudolph Valentino’s dog Kabar, appearances of whom are still claimed. Others appear out of nowhere to do good deeds, like the ghostly dog that appeared in a New Mexico train station to prevent an impending accident. Others seem intent on wreaking havoc, like a phantom cat that once terrorized an Irish estate. And then there are those that are just bizarre, like the ghostly talking mongoose that was once famous on the Isle of Man. 

Dr. Paul Koudounaris has a PhD in Art History from UCLA. An award winning author and photographer, he is best known for a series of three books on the visual culture of death, Empire of DeathHeavenly Bodies, and Memento Mori.
