A new Bay Area art museum will open its doors this fall at Stanford University. The Anderson Collection will showcase American post-war greats like Jackson Pollack and Mark Rothko along with modern California masters like Wayne Thiebaud and Richard Diebenkorn. The works are a gift from Bay Area collectors Harry and Mary Anderson – known to most people as “Hunk” and “Moo.”

KQED Newsroom’s Thuy Vu visited the Andersons in their Bay Area home to see what it’s like to live in a house full of masterpieces — and why they are sharing the core of their acclaimed collection with the public.
