His public commissions can be seen at the Hudson River Park, NYC; Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati; Long Island Railroad terminal, Brooklyn, and others. He received the Henry J. Leir Prize presented by the Leir Charitable Foundations. His “Gardening Sukkah” was selected as best work in “Reinventing Ritual: Contemporary Art and Design for Jewish Life” at The Jewish Museum in 2010. Wexler teaches at Parsons The New School for Design.
