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.
