You don't have to be a Rockefeller to collect art...
Megumi Sasaki's inspiring documentary opens Friday, June 5 in New York at the Beekman Theatre and Cinema Village. HERB & DOROTHY tells the incredible true story of a postal worker and a librarian who built an enormous collection of contemporary art with modest means. In 1992, Herb and Dorothy Vogel donated over 4,000 works of art (amazingly crammed into their tiny Upper East Side apartment) to the National Gallery of Art. Vogel 50/50, the initiative to apportion the overflow of artworks among the fifty states, also kicks off this year. An Arthouse Films release.
