Event Description
The Friends of the Art Museum invite you to join us for the annual spring opening reception, featuring NetWorks, the first exhibition of the Spencer's signature gift of minimalist and conceptual art from New York collectors Herb and Dorothy Vogel. The evening also marks the unveiling of It Came from the Sky, the Spencer-commissioned Central Court installation by Freeman Foundation International Artist-in-Residence Jin Shan.

Keynote speaker Megumi Sasaki is the award-winning director of Herb & Dorothy, the incredible true story of Dorothy and Herbert Vogel, a librarian and a postal worker who built a world-class art collection. Look behind the scenes of the film's premiere, with narration by Dorothy Vogel.
