Jeanne Tripplehorn new WMF spokesperson

Jeanne TripplehornJeanne Tripplehorn, who currently stars in HBO’s critically acclaimed series, Big Love, has agreed to serve as a spokesperson for World Monuments Fund (WMF),  the leading independent organization devoted to saving the world’s most treasured places. WMF President Bonnie Burnham says, “We are thrilled that Jeanne has agreed to be a spokesperson for the World Monuments Fund. She brings a passionate voice to our cause that will help draw even more attention to the plight of architectural heritage around the world.” Tripplehorn says she’s very excited about this new role. “I’ve had a deep appreciation for architecture and preservation throughout my life. I am especially interested in WMF’s wonderful program, the World Monuments Watch, through which they announce every other year a list of 100 most endangered sites. One of the most recent Watch sites is Route 66, which runs through my hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and ends not too far from where I now live in Los Angeles. We all take for granted that the places we love will be around forever, but that’s clearly not the case, not even with Route 66, a familiar reminder to me of home. So I am proud to speak out on behalf of the World Monuments Fund, which has been saving historic sites for more than 40 years, from Beijing to Rome to Tulsa. I hope people across the globe will help us save even more.”

    Good for her, seems a very worthwhile organization striving to preserve these ndangered sites. My brother is an architect and he has opened my eyes to many wonderful facts in this field through his trips to his main project in China as well. I am very interested in historical sites and hope to have the opportunity to visit many more of them in the future.

    On an aside, Jeanne is really good in Big Love as well.
