Warrenville Inspired Featured Artist: Mia Capodilupo

On Earth Day, we are featuring one of our Warrenville Inspired artists, Mia Capodilupo, who uses recycled materials in her sculptures and installation work.  Mia was inspired by the museum’s Chicago, Aurora & Elgin Railroad signal.

Mia's work alongside the CA&E Railroad signal.

Artist Statement 

“One idea central to my practice is the imaginary world created with ordinary materials and the urban landscape, where empty storefronts, abandoned buildings and discarded objects become escapist fantasy worlds. I work in mixed media creating tactile landscapes that take the form of sculpture, installation and wall relief incorporating plaster, metals, found and cast rubbers, glass, wood and fabric. I use elements of the human and animal body, the natural world, the worlds of fashion and media, the urban object and the fabricated form and borrow from both the conceptual and the vernacular.”

Learn more about Mia on her website http://www.miacstudio.com, and stop by the museum to see her piece and the other great works that are a part of Warrenville Inspired before this show closes in just one week!
