Discarded

Cheryl Capezzuti
If you’ve ever attended a First Night parade in Downtown Pittsburgh, you’ve experienced the joy that comes from viewing Cheryl Capezzuti’s puppets. Hundreds of the artist's larger-than-life, colorful characters have been dancing in the New Year’s Eve celebration for more than a decade. Now, the Pittsburgh artist returns to her sculptural work in Discarded, a solo show at be galleries, featuring artwork created from items people normally throw away. In one gallery, view puppets and masks created from travel debris collected during Capezzuti’s summer residency at the Pittsburgh International Airport. In the second, human-sized sculptures created from dryer lint. (Yes, the stuff thrown away after your clothes are dry.) Who knows? It just may inspire you to create some artwork yourself next time you’re doing a load of laundry.
