From 2008 to 2020, CPP ARC Professor Sarah Lorenzen has served as its Resident Director managing programming, educating student docents, and overseeing the restoration of the house. In 2010 Sarah began an exhibition program where artists/architects are invited to spend time in residence and to create in-situ installations that respond to the architecture, the period in which the house was built, or the history of Richard Neutra. The artist David Hartwell (Sarah's husband) was an active participant in the restoration and programming activities at VDL, and was the house's resident photographer. His work inside and outside of VDL can be seen on his website doublebang.
