The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection
The Vogel Collection was started in the early 1960s and has grown to over 4,000 works of art. The Collection contains primarily drawings, with some significant works of painting and sculpture, and is best-known for its holdings of minimal, post-minimal and conceptual art by primarily American artists whose careers developed after 1960. In 1992 the National Gallery entered into an agreement with the Trustees of the Vogel collection to acquire all or part of the thousands of works in the Collection for the benefit of the people of the United States. In 2008, under the umbrella of the National Gallery, the Vogels committed 2,500 works of art to be offered to institutions in fifty states. The Boise Art Museum is proud to be a recipient of this generous gift, which includes works by numerous well-known artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Will Barnet, and Pat Steir.
Special thanks to the many individuals whose collective contributions made framing these fifty works of art possible.
