2010 World Monuments Fund list

Postby Nathan » Tue Oct 06, 2009 3:05 pm

The new list of monuments threatened by neglect, vandalism, disaster and conflict is pretty shocking -- especially in America. Of 93 sites on the list, 16 are 20th century, including Guadi's Temple Expiatori (which one can argue is 19thc, but you know what I mean).

If you've never seen the Phillis Wheatley, it's worth the trip --
