Burton Pritzker: Everything is Also Something Else
The Museum of the Big Bend presents the work of photographer Burton Pritzker of San Marcos, Texas. Pritzker’s work strips away unnecessary elements that distract from the essence of an experience. Seminal works from his Texas Rangeland and Forgotten Planes series as well as his current photography will be on display.
Exhibit runs through September 2, 2019.
