Freshkills was recently featured in the New York Times Metro section; Doskow’s work has also been reviewed and featured in Photograph, Elle Décor Italia, Architect, Wired, Smithsonian, and Slate. Doskow was one of 50 women artists featured in the 2018 book 5o Contemporary Women Artists; Groundbreaking Art from 1960 to the Present.
