Images of Discovery at MIT Museum (Cambridge, Massachusetts)

Opens February 15, 2015 at the MIT Museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Photographers, image makers, and innovators Felice Frankel, Harold “Doc” Edgerton, and Berenice Abbott are featured in this new exhibition at the MIT Museum. While working at MIT, each photographer explored a range of scientific questions.

By using strobes, magnification, and other light-capturing strategies, they reveal their curiosity about the natural world and how it works. Visitors will learn more about using photography to examine the unknown through their exposure to these fascinating photographers.

The Jeweled Net: Views of Contemporary Holography at MIT Museum (Cambridge, Massachusetts)

The MIT Museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts is one of the best places in the world to see holograms. Most of what they have (including works from the New York Museum of Holography before it closed) is not on view. What you see on exhibit though makes you wish for an entire museum again!

Over 20 holograms created by international artists, as well as several from the MIT Museum collections, will be on display in the MIT Museum’s holography gallery.

The exhibition presents a rare opportunity to view selected works from the world-wide community of practicing display holographers. The MIT Museum holds the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of holograms and regularly invites artists to showcase new work at the Museum.
