"Herb and Dorothy" movie review

Untitled (Vogel living room drawn by memory) by John Salt
 Another movie review:  Herb and Dorothy Vogel married in 1962, cultivated a mutual love of art, and obsessively began collecting. They lived in a rent controlled apartment--he worked at the post office and she at the Brooklyn Public Library--and steadily amassed a collection of 4,782 pieces of conceptual and minimalist art that they eventually gifted to the National Gallery. A traveling show, Fifty Works for Fifty States, appeared in Oregon at the Portland Art Museum in Winter 2010. Sadly, I missed it.
