“[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. The core of the project, the creation of one-load-of-lint-sized figures, ebbs and flows as people donate dryer lint from around the world. The Project has grown to include critically noted exhibits, installations of human-sized figures, contemporary puppetry and performance events. The National Lint Project is not accepting donations at this time.
