Numerous other pieces of Bell's work are on display throughout the United States in colleges, libraries, colleges, cultural institutions, post offices, and hospitals. Before her beginning her post as a professor of sculpture at the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts, Bell served as the Sculpture Supervisor for the Federal Arts Project, which was funded by the W.P.A.
