Jim Huntington was born in Indiana in 1941. He attended the State University in Bloomington, Indiana, then El Camino College in California in the late 1950s. Huntington was awarded National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships as well as grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the Adolf and Esther Gottlieb Foundation. A number of his one-person exhibitions were held in galleries in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and Boston. After living many years in New York, Huntington 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. 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.
