DETROIT (AP) – Two collectors have donated a group of eight holograms created by artist Louise Bourgeois to the Detroit Institute of Arts .
The gift from museum patrons Guy and Nora Lee Barron was announced earlier this month. The museum says Bourgeois created the “Untitled” holograms in 1998, when she was among a group of artists approached by a former hologram studio called C-Project.READ MORE: What Is The Best Sunscreen For Me?

The three-dimensional imagery highlights objects that illustrate a psychological portrait of Bourgeois’ youth and upbringing. For example, the museum says a large chair with three smaller chairs nestled beneath recalls her mother’s protective nature toward her children.READ MORE: Parole Denied For Don Miller Who Killed 4 Women In Lansing In The 1970s
