Sylvia Wald's work was included in 1940 MoMA exhibition American Color Prints Under $10. The exhibition was organized as a vehicle for bringing affordable fine art prints to the general public. Sylvia Wald was also included in the 1947 and 1951 National Serigraph Society exhibitions at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts. 

During the 40's & 50's, with Abstract Expressionism rising to dominate the New York art scene, Sylvia Wald's art became increasingly abstract. Eventually Wald would became known as a pioneer of the movement, especially for her innovations in silkscreening, a technique she mastered in 1941 after observing Harry Gottlieb in Louisville, Kentucky, while on assignment with her first husband, a medical practitioner. 

Instead of ink, the standard material, Sylvia Wald used oil paints. She brought the "action painting" method, popularized by Jackson Pollock among others to textiles, creating large-scale pieces of five and six feet. 

From the 60's onward Sylvia Wald became increasingly interested in sculpture, especially collage and assemblage. She often worked with paper, which she treated with the same sense of experimental abandon as she had previously brought to silkscreening -- dying, folding, twisting, ripping the material in search of new possibilities of expression.

Sylvia Wald's work can be seen in numerous prestigious collections, including: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Solomon R.Guggenheim Museum, in New York, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C, Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, and Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts, Grunewald Collection Museum, U.C.L.A., Los Angeles, Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris, France, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England.
