The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection

From July 12-Sept. 28, audiences will have the opportunity to view works selected from The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection. In 2010, UNLV was the recipient of 50 contemporary works from the celebrated collectors. The Vogel Collection has been characterized as unique among collections of contemporary art, both for the character and breadth of the objects and for the individuals who created it.

Beginning in 1962, New York postal clerk, Herbert Vogel, and his librarian wife, Dorothy, began collecting contemporary works of art. The couple dedicated all of Herb's salary to purchasing art, and in a few decades had amassed a collection encompassing some 4,000 works. Today, these works form one of the most remarkable collections of contemporary art in America.

Motivated by the desire to share their collection with the public, the couple developed a program to gift 50 works to one institution in each of the 50 states, including UNLV. This program became known as Vogel 50x50. The collection includes the work by such notables as Stephen Antonakos, Neil Jenney, Lynda Benglis, Lucio Pozzi, Edda Renouf, Bettina Werner and Richard Tuttle.

The award-winning documentary, Herb & Dorothy, by filmmaker Megumi Sasaki, will be playing in the Barrick Museum to accompany the exhibition. The film tells the extraordinary story of the Vogels.
