World Monuments Fund 2011 Hadrian Award
Every year, World Monuments Fund presents the Hadrian Award to international leaders who have advanced the understanding, appreciation, and preservation of the world’s art and architecture. WMF honored Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder with the 2011 Hadrian Award. Ronald and Jo Carole Lauder actively support the arts and civic causes. Through philanthropy, they express an unwavering commitment to the fine arts, architecture, and preservation. Mr. Lauder championed WMF's Jewish Heritage Program during his tenure as a WMF Trustee.
The Museum of Modern Art, the Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies, and Neue Galerie benefit from the passionate support of the Lauder family.
