Dr. Cottrell and his partner, Joseph Lovett, began collecting art in the 1970s and have built an exceptional collection of contemporary art. Their collection has a particular depth because they build relationships with artists and stick with them as their work develops. "As collectors, they're very involved in getting to know the artists they collect," says Orlando Museum of Art curator Hansen Mulford. In 2001 they were listed among Art & Antiques Top 100 Collectors.
Cottrell has served on the Director's Council of the Whitney Museum of American Art and on the Prix Marcel Duchamp and Guerlain Drawing Prize Selection Committees.
