About Herb & Dorothy

Year Released:
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)

  Post-screening Discussion: A Conversation with the Collector
November 12 – Sunday – 4:30 p.m.
IU Cinema

New York--based collector Dorothy Vogel, who is featured in the documentary with her late husband, Herb, will make a special appearance following the 3:00 p.m. screening of Herb & Dorothy. She will be joined in a short post-film Q&A by the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s Wilma E. Kelly Director, David A. Brenneman. Her visit is made possible in part by the Art and a Movie Film Series, endowed by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes, and the Lucienne M. Glaubinger Endowed Fund for the Curator of Works on Paper.


These programs are presented in partnership with the Eskenazi Museum of Art and IU Cinema and are sponsored by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes. Since the museum is closed for renovation, pre-screening talks or panels will take place in alternative locations, while the films and post-screening discussions are at IU Cinema. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
