The Leon Bibel Collection

Leon Bibel was assigned to the teaching division of the WPA/FAP, where he taught printmaking to young students at P.S. 94 and Bronx House, a community art center. The centers were designed to offer free arts education to people of all ages, and in concept and function, this open door policy promoted the arts as a valuable element of society, and an activity to which every individual should have access. One special student, Alfred Cohen, was a prolific printer, creating these nine artworks, among many others.

 One of Bibel's most frequent students, Alfred Cohen, was profiled in a newspaper article for his prolific artistic output and love for the art education offered by the WPA. His work is represented with these nine prints.
