Mariola Kwasek, a former Professor of Micaela Vivero, visited campus from March 27 - April 4. Born in Poland, Kwasek has been at the School of Contemporary Arts and Communication at Universidad San Francisco de Quito since 1988.

Her weavings and paintings are inspired by landscapes in Ecuador. Mariola met with several classes and did weaving with the students in the Fibers class. She donated one of her weavings to the art department. Mariola also did individual critiques, with the help of an interpreter. She spoke to a couple of Modern Language classes and gave a public presentation, Weaver of Light, on Thursday, March 2. An interpreter from Modern Languages helped with that presentation. Mariola also attended the Spring Department Art Marathon. She worked on a piece from 7 pm until about 3 AM, before heading back to the Buxton Inn. Along with the Art Department, her visit was funded by Modern Languages and the Laura C. Harris Fund.
