Vogel Collection Coming to Cadiz

VOGEL1CADIZ, KY (6/14/12) – Cadiz Community Arts Center/Janice Mason Art Museum/Southern Kentucky Independent Theatre is proud to announce the opening of The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States, organized by the Speed Art Museum of Louisville, Kentucky.

The Vogels defied the art collector stereotype. They set their passion for collecting above personal comfort, using Dorothy’s salary as a reference librarian at the Brooklyn Public Library to cover the expenses of daily life, and devoting Herbert’s salary as an employee of the United States Postal Service, to art acquisitions. Over a period of four decades and with modest means, this extraordinary, deeply thoughtful, and committed couple assembled a highly personal and historically significant collection of over 4,000 works of art.

The Vogel Collection includes works by some of the most important artists to emerge in the 1960s such as Lynda Benglis, Pat Steir and Richard Tuttle; and key figures from the following two decades like Charles Clough, Ron Gorchov, and Edda Renouf. Drawings were a particular strength and focus of the Vogels’ collecting and their subsequent gifts to museums. When they began collecting in the early 1960s, they were attracted to small drawings because of the price, the size (they have lived in the same small rent-controlled Manhattan apartment since they married), and how a drawing reveals the “artist hand” and the initial form of an idea. This emphasis on drawings adds to the unique and intimate nature of the Vogel Collection.

All objects in this exhibition were gifts to the Speed Art Museum on behalf of the Commonwealth of Kentucky as part of THE DOROTHY AND HERBERT VOGEL COLLECTION: FIFTY WORKS FOR FIFTY STATES, a joint initiative of the Trustees of the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection and the National Gallery of Art, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States, organized by the Speed Art Museum of Louisville, Kentucky opens Saturday June 16 through August 26. The Janice Mason Art Museum is open Tuesdays – Saturdays 10 AM – 4 PM and Sundays 1 PM – 4 PM. Evening hours can be arranged for group tours at no charge. Admission is free; donations are greatly appreciated.

Southern Kentucky Independent Theatre and Janice Mason Art Museum are subsidiaries of the Cadiz Community Arts Center. The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency supports the Cadiz Community Arts Center with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
