Nationally, Levitina’s work has been exhibited at the Noyes Museum, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, among others. Internationally, she has shown at the City Hall in Odessa, Ukraine, St Jean des Arts in Normandy, France, and was awarded an exhibition at the Foundation Taylor in Paris, France. Levitina's bronzes can be found in various public and private art collections in the US and in Europe, including Thomas More Law Center in Ann Arbor, MI, Jewish Museum in Budapest, Hungary, Van Mieghem Museum in Antwerp, Belgium, and the Flanders House in New York City.
