Born in Indiana, Jim Huntington attended the State University in Bloomington, then El Camino College in California in the late 1950s. He was awarded National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships and 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. The Addison Gallery of American Art in Massachusetts, the Laguna Gloria Museum in Texas, the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Nebraska, Storm King Art Center in upstate New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City and the Power Institute of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia are some examples of museums that hold works by Huntington in their public collections. Leaving New York City in 1994, Huntington moved to a small town outside Austin, Texas where he continues to work in his studio.
