His work can be seen in major collections, including: the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the National Center for African American Artists, Boston Public Library, Brown University and the DeCordova Museum.  His paintings have been exhibited at the Rose Art Museum in Brandeis University, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, MA.  Additionally, Robert Freeman is part of a collection of African American artists called the Freedom Place Collection, joining the ranks with the artists Benny Andrews, Romare Bearden, Alma Thomas, and Richard Yarde.
