“[Capezzuti] has hit on a common denominator in the laundry-drying world while provoking questions about the nature of art. To find all this and humor too is a rare thing.”

–Ellen Wilson, Art Critic

The National Lint Project is a community art making inquiry that began in 1994 as a sculptural lark and hit it’s stride during a four-year-long residency in a working laundromat from 2000-2004. It has grown to include exhibits, installations of human-sized figures, contemporary puppetry and performance events.

To participate write a very short note about who you are or how you feel about doing laundry. Send your submission to Studio Capezzuti, 1509 Termon Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15212.
