with introduction about Akron Art Library

Free and open to all.

He was a postal worker, she was a librarian. Together these unlikely collectors amassed one of the most important post-1960s art collections in the United States. Megumi Sasaki’s award-winning documentary, Herb & Dorothy, depicts the Vogel’s relationships to the artists they supported and their collection of over 4,782 works. Fifty of these works are now a part of the Akron Art Museum permanent collection, as part of The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States.

This screening is part of the Akron Art Library, an art lending program from the Akron Art Museum in partnership with the Akron-Summit County Public Library.

At the end of the film, check out the Akron Art Library across from the Culture & AV desk and reserve an original work of art to hang in your home.
