From 1963-1968, Cohen worked with the Jewish Museum, designing exhibition invitations and catalogs, including this one for Russian-born, American painter Ben Benn. After attending art school and developing her graphic skills working with husband, Alvin Lustig, Cohen went on to become a pioneering woman designer and artist, using a distinctive blend of European avant-garde and American modernism.
