Film: Herb and Dorothy

Sep 22, 2013
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Fleming Museum 101

This film tells the extraordinary tale of Herb Vogel, a postal clerk, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian, who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history on very modest means. Devoting all of Herb's salary to the purchase of art, and living solely on Dorothy's paycheck, they collected the work of then-emerging artists such as Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Chuck Close, Lynda Benglis, Sol LeWitt, Pat Stier, and Donald Judd, eventually filling their one-bedroom New York City apartment with more than 4,000 works of art. (87 min.)
