Although Grossman"s work was well known and in demand through the 1950s and 60s her pieces were photographed by Julius Shulman, she appeared frequently in John Entenza's Art & Architecture magazine and she received two prestigious Good Design Awards from MoMA" she later faded into relative obscurity.
