After living many years in New York, Huntingon moved to Coupland, Texas in 1994 where he continues to reside and work. With the help of a few friends and neighbors, Huntington maintains the Huntington Sculpture Foundation, a trust that the artist set up to preserve his work. The Foundation features small sculptures inside his studio workshop and dozens of large sculptures on the acreage surrounding the workshop.
Huntington’s work is held in numerous museums, and in private and public collections of such institutions as: Power Institute of Contemporary Art in Australia, Kansai Gaidai University in Japan, Scripps College in California, Boston Public Library, Storm King Center in New York, the Noguchi Sculpture Garden in Costa Mesa, California, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
