Over the years, van Straaten placed fine art in museums around the world including The Metropolitan Museum and MOMA as well as corporate collections including the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Bank of America, A.T. Kearney, Hallmark Cards and many accounting, architectural and law firms.

 

William van Staaten also founded Riverhouse Editions in 1988, a print facility and publisher based in Steamboat Springs that worked with artists from all over the world to produce high-quality etchings and monotypes for over 20 years.
