Watch Independent Lens “Herb and Dorothy” at 9:00 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28 on Wisconsin Public Television.

For more than 50 years they’ve been married, and for over 50 years, they have collected art.  Meet Herb and Dorothy Vogel, avid art collectors with quite an impressive collection.  From paintings the size of a wall to twisted wire a bits of string, the Vogels appreciate all art and buy the pieces they can not live without.  This is particularly interesting to me because I really don’t understand people with an eye for art.  I’ve spent many hours at some of the museums throughout Wisconsin, some things are beautiful, some historic, but there are always a few pieces that look like junk.  It’s amazing to see art through the eyes of Herb and Dorothy because they truly understand and appreciate each piece.  Enjoy the preview below and start to learn a little bit about Herb and Dorthy, the art they collect and the people who know them best.
