Cheryl Capezzuti is a puppet maker living and working in Pittsburgh. She is also a sculptor and a painter and a teacher. She told me about how she was introduced to making giant puppets.
She also told me how, if you live in or around Pittsburgh, you can check her giant puppets out of the library. Seriously. How cool is that?
And she told me about all the things Pittsburgh is doing that make it such an incredible place for artists and families and everybody else.
