Documentary: Herb and Dorothy

I watched this wonderful documentary last night. What an interesting couple, what a surprising and unassuming way to live, and how amazing to see the massive impact people can make in this world by choosing to simply focus and be.

Herb & Dorothy
NR 87 minutes

Chronicling the story of unlikely art collectors Herb Vogel and Dorothy Vogel, filmmaker Megumi Sasaki demonstrates that it's not necessary to be wealthy in order to build a significant collection in this fascinating documentary. A postal clerk and a librarian, the Vogels share a passion for art, which they pursued over decades, becoming two of the most important collectors of minimalist and conceptual art with more than 4,000 pieces.
