Robert Stackhouse (American, b. 1942)

Stackhouse is interested in the theme of transition and ship motifs and bridges are important in his work, suggesting journeys and transitions from one place to another.

His works are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and The Phillips Collection, all in Washington, D.C.; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Smith College Museum of Art, Northampton,  MA; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota; the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum; the Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage; and the Museum of Art, Baltimore.
