The Vilcek Foundation Celebrates LOST: A Showcase of the International Artists and Filmmakers of ABC’s Hit Show
May 20 to June 5, 2010
The Vilcek Foundation gave LOST fans grieving the end of their favorite television program a behind-the-scenes view of the diverse cast and crew, along with many of the iconic props from the show. By focusing on the images and backgrounds of 20 immigrant and first-generation contributors to the wildly popular television show, the Foundation also advanced its primary mission: to heighten awareness of foreign-born contributions to American culture. LOST’s executive producer Carlton Cuse, writer Melinda Hsu Taylor, actor Jorge Garcia (“Hurley”), and cinematographer John Bartley, were among the featured artists.

A Message from Jan and Marica Vilcek
Our founders arrived as penniless refugees over fifty years ago, but with the kindness and opportunity they received in the United States, they went on to accomplish great things in biomedical science and art history. Read their statement on the recent executive order imposing a travel ban.
