Art collector Dorothy Vogel will be visiting Brenau March 28-31 in connection with the upcoming Gala. Dorothy and Herbert Vogel are considered to have established one of the most important post-1960s art collections in the United States. Brenau University received a donation of over 100 works from the Vogels and has established the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection. To reserve a space in either the Friday or Saturday luncheon sessions with Dorothy Vogel please contact Nichole Rawlings at ude.uanerb@sgnilwarn or 770-538-4764 by Friday, March 21. Please mention any dietary restrictions.
Mrs. Vogel will be participating in two special luncheon sessions Friday and Saturday, which are open to the Brenau community on a first-come, first-served basis, and a screening of the film Herb & Dorothy 50 x 50, which is open to the public. Reservations are recommended for the luncheon sessions, as seating is limited.
Friday, March 28 from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the Wilkes Board Room in the Hopkins Dining Hall, Mrs. Vogel will discuss the vast collection of art she and her late husband Herbert established over the years. Lunch will be provided.
Saturday, March 29 from 10:30–11:30 a.m. in the Leo Castelli Gallery at the John S. Burd Center, Mrs. Vogel will discuss the current exhibition, The Black Mountain College Experience, and her knowledge of the works and their artists. Brunch will be provided.
A free public showing of the film Herb & Dorothy 50 x 50, a documentary following the donation habits of the Vogels, will be shown from 2-3:15 p.m. on Saturday, March 29 in the Whalen Auditorium at Brenau’s East Campus in Gainesville. The film showing will be followed by a Q&A with Mrs. Vogel.
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to host Dorothy Vogel and we encourage the entire Brenau community to take advantage of these opportunities.
