Dion Neutra, son of modernist architecture icon Richard, died in November at age 93. In 2014, Dion, an architect himself who fought to preserve the legacy of his father’s buildings and residences, transformed the office of their architecture firm in Silver Lake — opened in 1950 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places — into the Neutra Institute Gallery & Museum, which hosts art exhibits and other events.
In memory of Dion’s passing, the gallery hosts A Nod to Mod! photography group show featuring work by his brother Raymond, Deb Smith, Adriene Biondo, John Eng, Alan Hess, Steven Schafer, Cameron Carothers, Scott Moody, Jack Laxer and Weekly contributor Nikki Kreuzer, paying tribute to not only Neutra designs but other examples of mid-century modern architecture. The exhibit takes place on two nights, the latter following a memorial service for Dion at the Neutra–designed Eagle Rock Center for the Arts.
