Vogel: Fifty Works for Utah

Dorothy and Herbert Vogel, a librarian and a postman of modest means, began acquiring works by contemporary artists in the 1960s. Over the next forty years the couple amassed a vast, diverse collection of contemporary art. The collection, which includes almost five thousand pieces by roughly two hundred artists, focuses on conceptual, minimalist, and post-minimalist art. In 2008 the Vogel's and the National Gallery of Art announced the dispersal of 2,500 works by 177 artists to museums throughout the country to heighten public awareness of contemporary art and artists. The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is the beneficiary of this generous gift to the state of Utah.
