Victor Pytko, Birmingham Image Maker: Art, Science and Light
Victor Pytko has been active in the local art community for many years, and has exhibited his work and won numerous awards throughout Michigan. He is also a former instructor and member of the advisory board for the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center. A long time resident of Birmingham, Victor has painted numerous landscapes and settings around town, some of which will be on display to the delight of people who know the city well. But that is only part of the story of Victor’s creative work. He is also known for his abstract and non-representational work. Preferring to call himself an ‘image maker,’ he works in various media, including film. He is particularly interested in the science of light, visual illusion, and motion. The works on display at the Birmingham Museum are evidence of some of the many ways Victor has explored these concepts.
In addition to his other pieces on display, Pytko will be creating new installations at the museum that feature aspects of science, light, and motion that will be fascinating to visitors of all ages. To complement these concepts, the museum will be incorporating other interactive displays that invite visitors to participate in their own process of exploration.This is an exhibition you won't want to miss. Group tours are available by appointment for six or more people; otherwise, the museum is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., and until 8:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month.
