In 1994, the IAP was given a major grant from the Rockefeller Foundation to organize the exhibition Seven Pillars: The National Treasure Artists of Vietnam. These artists included:

•   Bui Xuan Phai (1920 - 1988)
•   Tran Van Can (1910-1994)
•   Nguyen Sang (1923 - 1988)
•   Nguyen Phan Chanh (1892 - 1984)
•   Nguyen Gia Tri (1908 - 1994)
•   To Ngoc Van (1906 - 1954)
•   Nguyen Tu Nghiem (1922 - 2016)

More than 140 works were selected from both private and public collections in Vietnam as well as from the living artists, Tri, Can and Nghiem. This exhibition has yet to open.
