Four local collectors discuss various ways of putting together an impressive art collection.
Twenty years ago, Michael Salcman's 7-year-old daughter Dara was walking through the family's house in Homeland when she glanced up at him and asked, "Daddy, why do we live in a museum?"
It was an easy mistake to make. As Dara looked around, she saw paintings and prints on almost every wall, sculptures on nearly every shelf and table. She couldn't know it, but several of the artists—Grace Hartigan, Sam Gilliam, and Robert Motherwell—were in museums all over the world.
