An article titled "Finding a Home For Asian American Art", written by Munio, has been published in the January 1998 issue of Asian Focus, read it here.
Munio's resume is now available on-line here.
Munio read poetry at the Nigerian Ethnic Day on April 18th at the Miller Community Center, 330 19th Ave E., in Seattle.
Munio read poetry and flew aerogami accompanied by Deems on piano, Kim Horiguchi on drums, Owen Matsui on bass, and Josef LaVigne on cowboy guitar at "Voices From Our Skin, Words From Our Eyes", a "rainbow poetry/prose read" in Bellingham, Washington on April 18th from 2:00 to 3:00 in the afternoon. This event was sponsored in part by the Paul G. Allen Charitable Foundation.
Four of Munio's prints were on display during the months of November
and December at Ohio State University in the exhibition entitled "Diversity
in Contemporary African Art: Causes and Effects". Munio is the only
artist included who is not of African descent, however, he taught at the
University of Ife, Nigeria from 1977 to 1984. Visit their web site at http://www.cgrg.ohio-state.edu/~eodita.
