As a student at the Cleveland School of art, Dunbar had a sense that his career would be entwined in the arts, specifically design and architecture.  Reflective of his gifted talents, he was awarded a 1946 Taliesin Fellowship study with the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture in Wisconsin. Dunbar was heavily influenced by the work of Hungarian modernist artist László Moholy-Nagy, founder of Chicago’s Institute of Art and Design, as well as his own personal travels throughout Europe visiting many architectural landmarks.  Upon his return, he landed his first job in New York as assistant to the architectural photographer Ezra Stoller. He later worked at Harper’s Bazaar with Alexy Bradovich, Carmel Snow, and Diana Vreeland. Dunbar also designed book jackets and posters for the Museum of Modern Art which led to showroom design for Herman Miller. In 1956, he joined Skidmore Owings and Merrill for which he designed many corporate headquarters worldwide. Dunbar was also responsible for assembling major modern art collections. In 1977, Dunbar launched his own design firm with partner Lydia dePolo.  In 1987 he was inducted into the prestigious Interior Designers of America Hall of Fame, today he focuses on his own artwork in his Connecticut studio.
