Last Thursdays at the Anderson: Film Screening: Herb & Dorothy

September 28 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Anderson Collection - Map Link

FREE

The extraordinary story of Herbert Vogel, a postal clerk, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian, who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history with very modest means. In the early 1960s, when very little attention was paid to Minimalist and Conceptual Art, Herb and Dorothy Vogel quietly began purchasing the works of unknown artists. They proved themselves curatorial visionaries; most of those they supported and befriended went on to become world-renowned artists including Sol LeWitt, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Richard Tuttle, Chuck Close, Anderson Collection artist Lynda Benglis, and many more.
