Westfall has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad. His work is found in many museum collections including Louisiana Museum in Denmark, the Baltimore Museum, the Munson Proctor Williams and the Whitney Museum. He is the recipient of numerous awards, teaches at Rutgers and Bard and writes for Art in America.
