Rainbow-colored portrait of theater director Joe Papp, shown seated on a stool, holding a book (presumably of Shakespeare plays) open in front of him; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown in slight profile, his right side more visible, with his right hand resting inside the book; as viewer moves to right, he closes the book while speaking; when the viewer reaches the right side of hologram, he is shown in slight profile, his left side more visible.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
