Cheryl Lindley-Lopez's artistry in costume design gives iL CiRCo its distinctive look, rooted in the classical Commedia dell'arte style. Cheryl's award-winning costumes are on display in the permanent collection of the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art. She has also been honored with a commission to create costumes for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
