In addition to her studio work she has worked for the Indiana University Art Museum, the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts in Michigan, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Exhibiting extensively in regional and national competitive and invitational exhibitions, as well as solo shows in Michigan and Chicago, Whitaker received regional attention from the media, museum curators, and commercial galleries immediately out of graduate school.
