Her work has also been shown in New York at Flipside, Smack Mellon Studios, Pierogi Gallery, The Rotunda Gallery, The Sculpture Center, PS 1/MOMA, ES Van Dam, and the Lesley Heller Workspace; in the Bay Area at Don Soker Gallery, the Richard L. Nelson Gallery, the Crocker Museum, Jay Jay Gallery, The San Francisco Center for the Book, SOMARTS, and the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art; in LA, at the Brewery Project and Another year in LA; In Houston at Project Row Houses and Fotofest.
Hill is the recipient of two Pollock-Krasner Foundation Awards, two New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships in Sculpture, a National Endowment for the Arts Sculpture Fellowship.
