DESCRIPTION

In 2005 Herb and Dorothy Vogel made an extraordinary gift of artwork to the country by donating fifty works from their collection to fifty individual institutions across the United States. The Museum of Contemporary Art was chosen as the receiving institution in California and became part of the historic Fifty Works for Fifty States project, which includes significant works by Carl Andre, Lynda Benglis, Dan Graham, Joan Jonas, Edda Renouf, and Richard Tuttle, among others. MOCA will showcase a selection of this gift in its Grand Avenue building as a testament to the commitment of two contemporary art collectors and their wish to share their collection with the public.
