Aro Recommended Herb and Dorothy


USA 2008, 87 minutes
Dir. Megumi Sasaki
Rating: [G]
Genres: Documentary / Arts & Artists


Aroview: Devotional New York art patrons Herb and Dorothy Vogel are the subject of this delightful portrait, taking us inside the couple’s modest one bedroom apartment – also home to one the world’s most envied minimalist and conceptual art collections.

Humble and unpretentious, the Vogel’s unorthodox approach to acquiring art – they make a living as a postal worker and librarian respectively – is just one of the documentary’s many inspiring insights, as is their genuine disinterest in selling or profiting from works by the likes of Schnabel, Picasso, and Pollack (art which they'll eventually donate to public museums).
