This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A professor of textiles at the University of Nebraska from 1965 to 1996, Robert Hillestad is also the creator of many clothing and other multi-layered, kinetic items described as textile art.  With these pieces he has participated in more than 100 juried and invitational shows.  In 2008, a monograph of his work by Jo Ann Stabb and Beverley Gordon, was published: Robert Hillestad: A Textiles Journey.

The University of Nebraska has a Gallery named for him: "The Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery" on the east campus in Lincoln, where it is on the second floor of the Home Economics Building as part of the Department of Textiles, Clothing and Design in the UNL College of Educaton and Human Sciences. 

In 2008, Hillestad was the winner of the University's Doc Elliott Award, "given annually to a retired faculty or staff member whose caring has made a difference in the lies of alumni and who has gone beyond traditional expectations at UNL."
