Exhibit Explores Climate Change Via Fashion

The Muscatine Art Center showcases 15 works made of recycled and natural materials by artist Nancy Judd. The exhibit runs through Oct. 31.

Now on display at the Muscatine Art Center, “Alterations. tailored solutions to climate change” takes the concept of recycling to a new level.

Created by artist and environmentalist Nancy Judd, the 15 sculptures appear to be high-style couture, but are made with trash, recycled goods, roadside litter and elements from nature. Judd’s goal is that the sculptures will last a century. Each work is paired with a science-based solution for reducing carbon in the atmosphere.

The exhibit, which premiered at the Atlanta International Airport last year, runs through the end of October.

Museum hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and weekends from 1 to 4 p.m.
