Herb and Dorothy 50 X 50
OCTOBER 4 - 10 AT 7, 9PM (9PM ONLY ON MONDAY)
Wednesday film introduction from Catharina Manchanda, contemporary art curator at Seattle Art Museum!
(Megumi Sasaki, 2012, United States, Digital, 87 min)
Herb and Dorothy: they sound like one more couple your grandparents played pinochle with. But if it’s Herb and Dorothy Vogel, their favorite pastime is actually modern art, and the collection they amassed for fun in their apartment is now worth millions of dollars. In 2009 Megumi Sasaki offered up a portrait of this old married couple as friendly and unassuming as the couple themselves, sneaking a question or two about the culture of art admiration into a real-life tour of modern art’s most famous works. This follow up movie about the pair looks at them as they close the door on their life as collectors, distributing 50 works to an art institution in each of America’s 50 states.
