Art Smith was a jeweler living and working in Greenwich Village, New York in the 1950s. He showed his artistic talent early in life, winning Honorable Mention in an 8th grade poster contest sponsored by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. He went to school to become an architect, but when his math skills appeared deficient, he became a commercial artist, later taking jewelry making classes. Smith was mentored by Winifred Mason.
