Holography's Enthusiasts presents an opportunity to view selected works from the MIT Museum's holography collection, the largest and most comprehensive holography collection in the world.

The exhibition includes the first white-light transmission hologram, Motif I, by MIT Professor Stephen Benton. White-light transmission holography, also called "rainbow" holography, made widespread commercialization of holography possible and stimulated artists to see holography as a new artistic medium.

The exhibition also includes Liberty, by Jody Burns and Jerry Miller, a holographic stereogram of the Statue of Liberty made using film footage captured from a helicopter. Dennis Gabor, recipient of the 1971 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on holography, is the subject of a laser transmission hologram by G. Robert Schinella.
