Film Recommendation- "Herb and Dorothy"

I've recommended the film, "Herb and Dorothy" to all my artist friends and collectors.  It's an incredible true story of Herb and Dorothy Vogel, who have amassed one of the most important art collections of post-1960's art in the U.S..  They've done it all on their modest salaries as a postal worker and librarian.  It's a very inspirational story about shared passions, achieving the impossible and giving back. Being an independent film, it's not available everywhere, but you could take it out of your local library or see it on iTunes films.

The follow-up film, " Herb and Dorothy - 50 x 50", was released the summer of 2013.  I'm looking forward to seeing this film as well.  The film showcases how the Vogels donate 50 pieces of their collection to 50 museums in all 50 states of the US.
