Meet the Vogels, Art World Heroes for the Rest of Us

by: 
Emily, Columbine Library

The story of how Herb and Dorothy Vogel assembled one of the most extensive and important collections of 20th century art is quirky, inspirational, and just plain fun.  The NYC based couple worked at the US Post Office and the Brooklyn Public Library and spent their evenings and weekends scouting and buying art directly from people who would become some of the most influential artists, painters, and sculptors of the century.
