Join us tonight at the Art Museum for a screening of the film, Herb & Dorothy at 7 pm. We will be showing the film downstairs in the Centennial Complex Restaurant, which can be accessed from the lower front entrance or from the stairs off the lobby. This public program is free, and we'll be serving popcorn and soda to make it a true movie night!

Herb & Dorothy tells the story of the Vogels, a librarian and a postal clerk, who amassed an impressive collection of modern American art. The UW Art Museum received 50 pieces through their program with the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States. A selection of those works is on view at the Art Museum through August 27.
