Dorothy and Herbert Vogel chose early in their marriage to live on Dorothy’s salary as a librarian and devote Herbert’s postman’s salary solely to collecting art. Their recent donation to the Museum is a fraction of the Fifty Works for Fifty States project that has distributed the Vogel collection throughout the country.
Ruth Fine, Curator of Special Projects in Modern Art at Washington, DC’s National Gallery of Art, who orchestrated this massive project, will speak about these unique collectors and their generous gift.
All of the works from the Vogel gift will be on view in the Orme Lewis Gallery from March 26 – July 3, 2011 in an exhibition call Living for Art: Gifts from the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection.
In his Amazon.com best-selling book, Xanadu Gallery owner Jason Horejs shares insights gained over a life-time in the art business.
