This year marks Richard Neutra’s 120th birthday. Earth Day, April 22, will mark 42 years since the first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970, just a week after Neutra’s death. To recognize this event, the Neutra Institute is sponsoring the Neutra 4k-8k run/walk for Health on Sunday, April 22, 2012. The event will be held at the Silver Lake Meadow, across from the Richard and Dion Neutra VDL Research House II.
The morning’s activities will include a 4K individual run, children’s walk, family walk, 20K bike run, award ceremony and closing ceremony. Later in the day, there will be a self-guided tour of the VDL Research House, which is open to all. A wine reception, dinner and other evening events are reservation only and have limited space, so sign up early!
Your participation and/or purchase of any of the events of this day, aggregating $50 or more, will entitle you to a year’s membership in the Institute. All proceeds will go towards causes of preservation. For more information and to find out about volunteer opportunities, go to neutra.org.
