Meet Our 23-24

Hello!  My name is Taylor Cappelleri and I’m so happy to announce that I will be the Artist in Residence again for the 2023-24 Theatre Season! 

My family and I moved to West Lafayette about 10 years ago, because my husband was offered a position at Purdue University.  After a few years of living here, I met Julie Baumann, Director of Education and Outreach, who suggested I sign my daughter up for a kid’s class at Civic Theatre.  Fast forward seven years later, both my kids love the performing arts, and I’m creating art for the theatre that set them on the acting path.  It has been a true full circle moment for our family! 

As for myself, my creative journey began as a young child who simply loved to draw.  My grandparents where extremely influential in fostering my love for creating and eventually I went to college to study Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC.  Although I enjoyed drawing and sewing, I fell in love with a 2D design class that required us to make art only using black and white paper!  Fast forward twenty years later, paper is the medium I chose to go back to when I started creating again in 2019.  During 2020 I spent a lot of time in my art room using art as a tool toward self discovery and healing. This is the story and process I shared in my first gallery show at The Arts Federation in October 2020.  Thereafter, I began offering a commissioned art experience called “Tell Me Your Story.”  This process gave me the honor of hearing people’s most precious stories and turning them into pieces of art.  In September 2021, Raquel Lopez, Artistic Director of Civic Theatre, reached out and asked if I would be willing to create the show art for the 2022-23 season!  Theatre is the art of acting out stories, and I was drawing stories, so it was a perfect fit! 

The response to my artwork this season has filled my spirit with so much joy! I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to create for an organization that does so much to support artists of all kinds in our community! I’ve had the privilege of seeing almost every show this season and the talent that this small community theatre has fostered is remarkable! 

The Season Reveal Party for the 2023-24 show season is on April 22nd at 6p!  The shows and artwork for next season will be revealed that night!  I hope to see you there!
