Film Features Extraordinary Story of Ordinary Couple’s Art Collection
How did two government employees with modest incomes amass a priceless, world-class art collection? Herb and Dorothy 50 x 50, a documentary that will be screened in April in West Bloomfield, captures the remarkable story of Herb and Dorothy Vogel, who stunned the art world with one of the largest gifts in the history of American art.
As part of the Lenore Marwil Jewish Film Festival, a special screening of the film on April 28 will benefit the Brown Center, which serves senior adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders as well as their family caregivers.
