Biography from West Valley Art Museum:

Victor Millonzi, b. December 17, 1915 – d. March 18, 1997

Victor Millonzi’s last exhibition was a posthumous one at West Valley Art Museum (at that time known as Sun Cities Museum of Art) in Surprise, Arizona. It was May 20th, 1997.

Victor Millonzi was prolific and completed many distinct series of artwork. While wintering in Florida, he studied sunsets over the water and that resulted in his long and narrow brilliantly colored sunset paintings. When waterfowl captured his interest he took up wood carving and made many exquisitely painted decoys. While owning an antique shop, he fell in love with the luminescence of colored glass. Then he created many beautiful leaded glass lamps, domes and wall hangings in the Tiffany style. In the 60s Victor experimented with electronic neon sculpture which blended light, sound and motion. This "technology of light" has been exhibited at NBC Studios and in Rockefeller Center.

Vic taught art for 20 years at Edison High School in Mt. Vernon, NY. During that time, he also had an active sign painting business. Victor also had a lifelong interest in collecting antiques, including weathervanes, cast iron mailboxes, mechanical banks and even rug beaters! In his later years, he wrote a series of articles about these items for antique magazines.

Victor's artwork is listed In the American Federation of Arts' and Who's Who in American Art. He has exhibited in the major art centers of our country and has work in the permanent collections of the Walker Art Center, Corcoran Gallery of Art, The National Collection of Fine Arts In Washington, DC and the Albright-Knox Gallery In Buffalo.
