Ginny Lloyd (born 1945, Maryland, US) is an American artist, noted for her work with mail art, photocopy art, performance and photography. She founded Electro Arts Gallery in San Francisco in 1980 with programming devoted to promoting xerography. Her work was included in the exhibition, From Bonnard to Baselitz: A Decade of Acquisitions by the Prints Collection 1978-1988, at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, France and The Art Billboard Project. Lloyd's artworks are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Artistamp Museum of Artpool, Joan Flasch Artist Book Collection at the Flaxman Library at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University.



As a visiting artist in 1981, Lloyd worked with the Image Resource Center in Cleveland to create the first color Xerox billboard with Cleveland Institute of Art Printmaking faculty, Alexander Aitken. As part of the New Mexico Artist in Residence Program, Lloyd worked with the International Space Hall of Fame in 1983. In 1984, Lloyd was involved with a project called Space: The Frontier Gallery with artists Mike Mages, Sam Sanmore, and Aron Ranen. In collaboration, referring to the event as Art in Space the artists hosted a rocket launch in which artworks were micro-processed into a microchip and placed inside a rocket to be launched in Potrero del Sol Park in San Francisco.

In 1983, Ginny Lloyd published Ginny Lloyd's Blitzkunst : 54 artists of our era portrayed and questioned (alternate title Blitzkunst have you ever done anything illegal in order to survive?) through Kretschmer & Grossmann in Frankfurt, Germany in English and German, with introductions by Judith Hoffberg, Carl Loeffler, and Hal Fisher. For the project, Lloyd photographed and published interviews with 54 artists working across a variety of formats and media including Anna Banana, Vittore Baroni, Monty Cantsin, Ulises Carrión, and Stefan Eins.
