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: Delta Wants Other Airlines To Share ‘No-Fly’ Lists To Help Stop Unruly Passengers
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.
The Detroit Institute of Arts also owns two of Bourgeois’ sculptures as well as two works on paper, “Spider” and “Mother and Child.”MORE NEWS: Veteran Needs Help With Home Repairs
