Since Humphrey’s first solo exhibition in 1965, her art has been exhibited and collected worldwide, and it now resides in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

BACVA (1987-1991) was a pre-internet organization that attempted to provide a network for local groups, primarily through a calendar for outlining upcoming events. They also organized symposia for the organizations.
