Professor Mariana Valverde officially added Emerita to her title on July 1. Luckily, we had the chance to pay tribute to Mariana’s remarkable career in person at Marianafest in the fall.
Here are a selection of photos from a time when we could gather in person. All photos are by Tyler King unless otherwise noted.
