Giant Puppet Dance Club is a project at Falk Lab School where Capezzuti is on the Visual Arts Faculty. Through this project students dance and parade for local audiences.

 

Capezzuti’s Giant Puppet Lending Library began in 2008 out of her studio and opened at the Braddock Carnegie Library, in conjunction with the Carnegie International Art Lending Library, in 2013. Through this project, anyone can check out a giant puppet for events and celebrations with just a library card.
