10:00 am - 5:00 pm    The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States

Arts & Entertainment / Multiple Sponsors

This exhibit showcases, for the first time, the museum’s prestigious gift from Dorothy and Herbert Vogel. The Vogels, a couple of modest means, spent much of their lives amassing a collection of almost five thousand works of art from contemporary artists. In connection with the National Gallery of Art, they dispersed about half of those works to one institution in each of the fifty states, with each institution receiving fifty works. The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art was the beneficiary of this gift for the state of Utah and so now presents this gift in its entirety to public view.
