A lot of the art Cheryl Capezzuti creates starts out as a pile of trash. But set her loose on a heap of stuff most people toss out…and she will spin her magic to turn it into whimsical works of art.”

–Tony Russo in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


From "Aesop's Fables," a small puppet show made entirely from things discarded by libraries, to her residency at the Pittsburgh International Airport, where she created giant, dancing puppets from things people tossed on location, Capezzuti's artistic practice is always informed by the waste around her. She takes small steps everyday to make our world more sustainable both in art and in life.


"Aesop's Fables" was originally commissioned by the Carnegie Libraries of Pittsburgh and toured the region, pre-pandemic. Giant Puppet Dance Club at the Airport was part of the Art in the Airport program of the Pittsburgh International Airport.
