Caitlin Vitalo (b. 1988, New Haven, Connecticut) is a contemporary sculptor and glass artist whose work addresses systems of power and privilege. Working in a variety of mediums, such as glass, found objects, plastic, paint, and wood she uses her art to express the possibility that there always exists the opportunity to look at things from alternative perspectives.
Growing up in central Massachusetts, Vitalo began her artistic career working with glass at the Worcester Center for Crafts in 2004. She graduated with a BFA in sculptural studies from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2010 and an MFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 2018. She is currently living and working outside New York City and is an active board member of the Glass Art Society, an international glass organization.
Vitalo has received many honors including the Pilchuck Glass School Student Scholarship Award, 3rd place at the International Glass Art Society Student Exhibition in Norfolk, VA, and a recipient of Tyler School of Art’s Deans Grant. She has exhibited most recently at the Hillyer Art Space in Washington D.C. and Gallery One Artspace in Raleigh, NC.
