A center that focuses on art that uses holographic images just wrapped up an exhibit in the Clock Tower building on 41st Avenue in Long Island City.

“We just finished a really successful exhibition,” said Jonah Levy, project director of the Holocenter. “Artists were featured from all over the world.”

The “Inference: Coexistence” exhibition ran last month and gave the Holocenter footing in the neighborhood.

“It is a mind-boggling field,” Levy said.

The Holocenter also held a kids' event where children made their own telescopes in order to better understand light. Children were also able to play with 3-D toys to begin “discovering stereoscopic imaging” according to Levy.

“We’ve had great feedback from the events,” said Levy. “The parents seemed interested, as well.”

The Holocenter extends its reach from LIC to partnerships with MIT and facilities in Germany. “We are associated with different labs all over the world in visual art forms,” Levy said.

Although the “Interference: Coexistence” exhibition closed, the vault gallery will be open to the public for free every Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m.
