The Vogels are so awesome.

Ditto. I wish the 60 Minutes feature on them, made after they promised most of their collection to the National Gallery, was online.

Congrats to SAM, this stuff will really complement their Anne Gerber collection holdings.

Sol LeWitt does zip for me.

You need to ask him more nicely.

The Vogels are indeed great. Cute, too. And they made their money the old fashioned way- by working, not inheriting it, or even making a product I can curse at when I use my computer.

Although they did tend to bargain hard, they actually bought work from artists, in artists studios, almost every time. No art consultant visiting Mary Boone for them.
They bought cheap, trusted their own taste, and bought against the prevailing conventional wisdom, while working as a mailman and a teacher.

How far can you get from the Art Basel, Eurotrash, Jetset Mindset?

In response to Max Solomon:
Please let their be a wall drawing in SAM's future.
