'The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at PAFA and the Delaware Art Museum

3330322-1842420110.jpg

Since the early '60s, New Yorkers Dorothy and Herb Vogel have acquired a massive collection of contemporary art, using his income as a postal worker, while living on her income as a librarian. The couple has now given away 2,500 works - 50 works to a museum in each state. WRTI's Susan Lewis talks to the Vogels, and considers their gift to the nation.
