Season 11, Episode 1 Herb and Dorothy

First Aired: October 13, 2009

The Season 11 opener tells the story of Herb and Dorothy Vogel, a postal clerk and librarian who began collecting contemporary art in the early 1960s, guided by two rules: the pieces had to be affordable and had to fit into their one-bedroom apartment. By the early '90s, they had acquired a 4000-piece collection worth several million dollars.
