Born in Newark, NJ in 1927, Art served in the Navy in WWII. He attended Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts, and studied at the Art Students League, the New School of Social Research and Pratt Institute.
He leaves his loving wife Sondra, his devoted children, Linda Strauss and Ivan Boden and his wife Julianne Boden, along with his adoring grandchildren, Aaron Strauss, Aly Boden, Hannah Strauss and Kimberly Boden.
Art won many distinctive awards as a graphic designer and art director at IBM.
