In the twelfth episode of Collect Wisely we are speaking with Howard Rachofsky from Dallas. A life-long Texan, Howard along with his wife Cindy, has played a profound role in catapulting Dallas into a leading center for the collection and presentation of international contemporary art.
The Rachofsky Collection has great depth in Post-War art, with particular strength in American and European Minimalism, Italian Arte Povera and Japanese Gutai, of which they’ve assembled the most extensive collection in the United States. Through their various philanthropic endeavors, the Rachofsky’s have transformed the arts in Dallas. In addition to serving on the Boards of many cultural institutions, Cindy and Howard have pledged their collections in entirety to the Dallas Museum of Art.
