We missed the documentary Herb and Dorothy at Space Gallery but watched it Saturday night a la Netflix. The Vogels collected over 2,000 pieces of contemporary art in more than 30 years and stored them all in their one-bedroom apartment. In 1992, they donated everything to the National Gallery of Art.
Dorothy had my favorite line: "Anybody can have these ideas but to do it... it really is quite a miracle."
She was talking about the artwork but the same holds for what they did.
