Herb and Dorothy 50×50: You probably remember the Vogels from the moving 2008 documentary, HERB & DOROTHY, about how one couple with an extremely modest income managed to amass one of the most impressive and expansive art collections in the world. Now the same director, Megumi Sasaki, is trying to raise funds for a new documentary about the Vogels’ latest undertaking, “a historic gift project to give 50 of the Vogels’ works to one museum in each of the 50 states – a total of 2,500 works.” Apparently, their collection, which they donated to the National Gallery, has grown to include some 4,000 worls, more than the Gallery can handle. So they’re giving them away to museums around the country.
