These initial fellowships provided a diverse group of practitioners a platform to pursue experimental ideas in the field, and they included alumni such as Pritzker Prize winning architects Balkrishna V. Doshi and Fumihiko Maki, designer Harry Bertoia, photographer Harry M. Callahan, sculptor Eduardo Chillida, and painter Wilfredo Lam.
