Elizabeth Starcevic has been weaving large wall hangings in Mexico for over 25 years and is an emeritus professor of Spanish literature and language at the City College of New York, where she fought for open admissions, day care, and student and faculty rights, and worked actively in the union for over 40 years. She learned to weave in Mexico and has had shows in Bellas Artes and in museums and galleries in San Miguel de Allende and Xalapa. She has also shown in galleries and a variety of venues in New York City, New Jersey, and Vancouver. Although weaving is a “slow” art, it has been impossible for Elizabeth not to use it to respond to the upsurge of violence and insecurity that was unleashed during the presidential campaign of 2016.
