The Holographic Art Grant is a competitive award that recognizes outstanding artists working with holography. The selected projects are chosen for artistic merit and originality. The Holographic Art Grant provides production funding to enable artists to create high quality art holograms.
Surprised by how few art collectors owned holograms Hugues Souparis established the Hologram Foundation to help artists overcome production costs and make artworks available to buyers. Creating a funding pool for hologram production enables the creation of new artworks, with the goal of bringing holograms into our everyday environments.
The Center for the Holographic Arts supports artists through production residencies, project development and exhibitions. The HoloCenter is an innovative art center that inspires with creativity and technology.
