Collector Dorothy Vogel is scheduled to be present.

Considered one of the best documentaries about art and artists, this award-winning film tells the incredible story of a New York City postal clerk and a librarian who built one of the country’s most important collections of contemporary art and then gave it away to museums. The filmmaker Megumi Sasaki interviews not only the collectors and their family, but also famous artists like Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Sol LeWitt, Lynda Benglis, Will Barnet, and Chuck Close. The Vogelses story is an inspiring example of the intersection of art, passion, and philanthropy. (HD Presentation)
