Herb and Dorothy

A documentary about their love affair with art, “Herb and Dorothy,” .

Filmmaker Megumi Sasaki met the Vogels in September 2004 at an event honoring the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude. The idea of a modest-income couple with thousands of artworks stashed in their one-bedroom, rent-controlled apartment intrigued her.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude, famous for their large-scale environmental installations such as 2004’s “The Gates” in New York’s Central Park, have been friends with the Vogels for almost 40 years. The Vogels collected their first Christo/Jeanne-Claude work — a collage of the 1971 Colorado project “Valley Curtain” — in exchange for taking care of their tabby cat Gladys. The Vogels are animal lovers and own 19 turtles, lots of fish and one fluffy cat named Archie.

I saw this movie a few days ago, it was really enjoyable.  Click the link below for the trailer.
