Airport Exhibitions

The Recycle Runway collection has appeared in four international airports reaching millions of international travelers with Nancy’s message of environmental conservation.


Nancy has also created site-specific installations using trash. Consumption was funded by New Mexico Arts, explores many aspects of the concept of waste.

Praise for Nancy’s exhibitions:

“The exhibition was imaginative and fun! Beautifully designed and executed, Nancy Judd’s artwork delightfully engaged Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport‘s traveling public and employees. Her innovative exhibition creatively used the art of fashion to cleverly convey messages to promote sustainability and recycling. Highly popular, the exhibition generated wide media interest, both local and national, and will be remembered for years to come. “Art works” to make a difference, and Nancy’s certainly does!

It’s fun to see such innovation – in artistic expression and message – amidst the trappings of State bureaucracy. Everyone who sees it is intrigued. The Jellyfish Dress also honors women in interesting ways, which pop out in a public art piece. I like the subversive ways it turns people on to creativity. Bravo!
