Columbia University’s Catch & Release: “El Bowie Bakery” by Toni Munoz-Hunt

October 16, 2014
Growing up, Sundays were less about Mass and more about spending time with Grandma, and if I made it to church early enough, I’d help her ready Padre’s robe and the small offering baskets lined with dark velvet. María Refugio Enriquez Cruz Muñoz never missed Mass, and when Padre wasn’t at church, he even frequented the house to get her advice on his lectures, and…well…there was always a home cooked meal—chile Colorado, mole, rellenos, menudo, and posole. Something wonderful always simmered on the stove.

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.
