Oklahoma Contemporary 25th Anniversary Profiles: Ryan Cunningham

October 16, 2014
Model Behaviors interviewed artist/attorney Ryan Cunningham at the Oklahoma Contemporary in September 2013. During the interview we asked him why the Oklahoma Contemporary was so meaningful to him, and he said: "What’s most important to me about this spot is that this is where I really learned how to paint. I hadn’t painted a painting before. I had worked in charcoal, graphite, pastels and colored pencils before, but I had never really learned to paint. I really learned to paint with Bert. The work that I did at the Oklahoma Contemporary with Bert is what gave me the ability to be a painter. In a big way it all started in this space." The Model Behaviors video of the interview was picked up by the Oklahoma Contemporary newsletter which is celebrating 25 years of bringing art and art education to the Oklahoma City community.

America Scores Filled Billy Reid …

October 16, 2014
Oldtimers would describe Toni Munoz-Hunt as a cool drink of water. Ho-hum. Today’s crowd would just say Toni is a magnificent flute of champagne. Toni would probably smile and accept the compliment. But delve a bit deeper. You’ll find that she was the smallest kid in her class in a city along the border. Suddenly her height surged, so she was the tallest one in the crowd almost overnight.
