Collectors and Their Collections

Contemporary art has left the gallery and now inhabits every nook and cranny of our world -- from digital ephemera appearing on video screens to temporary and fleeting events that occur in vast public spaces. Spark explores what it takes to be a collector of cutting-edge contemporary artworks, including works that may not exist as tangible objects. Explore for new art with Rene di Rosa as he collects the work of local artists for his extraordinary di Rosa Preserve in Napa Valley. Get an insider's glimpse of the world's largest private collection of video art, at the home of Pamela and Richard Kramlich. And experience the unique challenges of collecting conceptual and performance works, with artist and collector Ted Purvis.
