    Evenings, Talks & Lectures, and part of Thursday Nights

    Jul 18

    Free with museum admission

    5—9 PM

    Samsung Hall

    How does inspiration ignite a passion so strong and focused as to compel a collector to collect? In conjunction with In the Moment: Japanese Art from the Larry Ellison Collection, explore the passion behind a collection. With drink in hand, listen to a series of short presentations on the practice of collecting various items from vintage vinyl to Japanese action figures. The night continues with the West Coast sneak peek of Herb & Dorothy 50x50, the follow-up to the award-winning documentary Herb & Dorothy, which tells the story of a world-class contemporary art collection built by a postal clerk and a librarian that outgrew its modest home and has now spread throughout the U.S. through their historical gift project, The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: 50 Works for 50 States. Filmmaker Megumi Sasaki will discuss the making of the documentary and how her relationship with the Vogels and contemporary art developed through this process. Join us and discover your collection obsession.
