2017 Hadrian Gala Honors Frank Stella with the Watch Award

Frank Stella is the recipient of the 2017 Watch Award, presented at World Monuments Fund’s 2017 Hadrian Gala in New York City on October 16, 2017. 

Stella, the famed American artist, was instrumental in saving Long Island’s A. Conger Goodyear House, one of the most significant houses built in the United States between the two world wars. His activism on behalf of modern buildings also led to the development of World Monuments Fund’s Modernism at Risk initiative, which draws attention to modern sites around the world.
