Bowdoin Receives Huge Donation of Art

January 14, 2014

The Bowdoin College Museum of Art has announced a donation of 320 works of art from the  collection of Dorothy and Herbert (Herb) Vogel. The Vogels are legendary in the art world for the way they built up a significant modern art collection, identifying works they could afford to buy on modest salaries and that became extremely valuable. The gift to Bowdoin includes works by 70 artists, including Robert Barry, Lucio Pozzi, Edda Renouf, Julian Schnabel, James Siena, Pat Steir and Richard Tuttle.
