In celebration of the upcoming exhibition, 50 Works for 50 States: New Mexico, the museum will be showing a special viewing of the film, Herb & Dororthy, a documentary about the couple who amassed the collection of art we will be showing. As it happens, there is a new sequel to that film by the same director that is specifically about the project, The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: 50 Works for 50 States. Herb & Dorothy 50x50 will be premiering in New York City at the IFC begining tomorrow, September 13th. Here, in Santa Fe, you can catch the movie at the Center for Contemporary Arts November 23-24th. It will also be in Taos, NM on October 11th and 12th at the Harwood Museum of Art and in Albuquerque, NM December 26-30th at the Guild Cinema. Herb & Dorothy 50x50 tells the story of the project to gift 50 works of art to one institution in every state in America. The New Mexico Museum of Art is this state's recipient of the gift.
