Herb & Dorothy 50x50 Trailer


Herbert and Dorothy Vogel were just a regular American couple with the former having been a postal worker and the latter a librarian. Though, there was something intriguing about them; they spent their days collecting interesting pieces of modern art out of their modest wages, and in 1992, became renowned in the art world for their exceptional generosity when they donated thousands of art pieces to National Gallery of Art, wishing to make their collection available to the public free of charge. In 2008, they announced that they would launch a gift project along with the Gallery called The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States in a bid to donate 50 pieces of art to 50 different states - as no one gallery in the country could possibly house so much at once. Sadly, in 2012, Dorothy announced that their collection was now closed following the passing of her husband.

This wonderful documentary follows on from the previous film 'Herb & Dorothy' released in 2008, updating the world on one of the largest collections of art in America. Megumi Sasaki returns as director in 'Herb & Dorothy 50x50' and it's set for release on September 13th 2013.

How To Draw A Bunny Review


Very Good
Ray Johnson, a member of Andy Warhol's gang, early pop artist, and enigmatic New York scion, has never been a tip-of-the-tongue celebrity. Though he worked for some 50 years, no single image has become synonymous with his name.

How to Draw a Bunny, a documentary from John W. Walter chronicling his life and work, aludes in title to one of his most common themes, simple bunny heads he would scratch on many of his works. What's the meaning of the bunny head, the Lucky Strike logo, or Elvis Presley's face -- all items that appear throughout his oeuvre? Walter doesn't have an answer, and he's not really trying to give us one, anyway. Instead we're treated to a rare look into his upbringing and artistic method, thanks to numerous interviews with Johnson's friends, family, and cohorts (not to mention a few interview clips of Johnson himself, shot before he drowned in 1995).
