About our Leaders

Mary Elizabeth Cantú, Executive Director. As a child, Mary Elizabeth Cantú dreamt of being Indiana Jones. Cantú (MA, Art Education) is a native San Antonian and has worked in the fields of arts, education and culture in San Antonio for over 15 years. In 2013 she became a national Reuse Institute Master Reuser—the first and only in San Antonio. The St. Mary’s University (San Antonio, TX) Art of Peace Award was presented to Cantú in 2016. Community engagement, art, education and green living have always been important to Cantú. In 2021 she transformed Spare Parts from a volunteer effort to a full-time organization.
