RIE MUNOZ, DOCTOR OF HUMANITIES

As part of the 1999 Commencement ceremonies Rie Munoz was honored by the University of Alaska SE with an honorary doctorate degree of humanities. Rie attended a dinner in her honor a few days before with the Chancellor of the University of Alaska along with previous winners of this award.

PHD


During a short speech, Rie told of her first Alaska painting of a Russian Church that she gave to her new neighbor.

 

 

Last year he gave the original painting back because he was heading to the Pioneer�s Home. Rie told of the estimated 2000 Alaskan paintings she's done since then.  She quoted an early 20th Century American painter, Robert Henri, who said,  �There is no more real life than the adventurous one of living, liking and expressing the things of ones own time.� Rie said she was trying to express the things of her own time in Alaska as an artist and that she intends to keep on doing just that.
The Commencement Ceremonies were carried out a few days later, with much pomp and circumstance. Close to 500 people packed the Centennial Hall in Juneau as Rie Munoz was given this high honor. She spoke to the crowd and told them that most of them in the hall have probably been subjects, albeit unwittingly, to her paintings over the years. Rie ended this special evening by saying it was the beauty of the land that brought her to Alaska but it was the people that made her stay.
