the ‘in’ couple

Herb & Dorothy are one of the biggest collectors of new art in New York (over 4000 pieces). And the amazing thing is they did this out of their working class salaries. They are funny, passionate, enthusiastic and they live only for arts.

i watched the one and only screening at Sinema, Old School and absolutely LOVE it! It’s one of the most inspirating and entertaining documentary film i’ve watched so far. Please try to watch it on dvd to share their passion for arts (and life).

“Herb & Dorothy, tells the extraordinary story of Herbert Vogel, a postal clerk, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian, who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history in a very modest means.” ~ Design Film Festival Singapore.
