Huntington’s work has been included in more than eighty exhibitions nationally and internationally over the past 25 years. His paintings are in private and public collections throughout the world, including The Rockford Art Museum in Rockford, Illinois and in U.S. embassies in the Philippines and Panama. Reviews of his work have been featured in numerous publications, including The Washington Post, The Washington Times, The New York Times, Juxtapos, Hi Fructose Magazine, The New Art Examiner, as well as features on CNBC and NPR.
Upon accepting the invitation to exhibit his work at RiverArts, Huntington proposed a collaboration between Future History Now and at-risk youth in the Chestertown community to create a meaningful artwork to be gifted to the Kent County community. RiverArts matched Huntington with youth from the Carter Center which is part of the Department of Juvenile Services.  Huntington, Gibb, and members of RiverArts staff and board will work collaboratively on January 28, 2017 to create a large-scale mural depicting Harriet Tubman surrounded by geometric code-quilt inspired designs.  After hanging in the exhibit, the mural will find a home in the Kent County community.
