Yoors’s work in tapestry, charcoal, paintings, gouaches, and photographs are included in collections of museums, cooperations, religious institutions as well as public private collectors.

Some of the works in public spaces remain on view, such as “Symphony” in Washington D.C. or the tapestry of “Sheep, 1961” commissioned for the Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Edina Minnesota.
