NEPO 5K Don't Run

You've got four hours to cover 3.1 miles in the NEPO 5K Don't Run art walk, which then concludes with a 6 p.m. after-party/exhibition (with more art) at NEPO House on Beacon Hill. That's not far to walk (or bike or skate or Segway), but the point is to linger at over 30 art installations and performances en route. There's a downloadable map to follow, which also lists the 80-plus local artists involved. Among the promised attractions, the Vis-a-Vis Society will polka for you at the starting point, Baso Fibonacci has painted a new mural, Zack Bent is doing something with tents, and Julie Alpert and Andy Arkley will create some kind of an elephant. You can seek refreshment during the trek at the Garden House, El Quetza, German Garde, and other restaurants offering food specials to art walkers. At the end of the journey (close to the light rail station), the festivities will extend to the garage next door, with music (by Whiting Tennis and others) and dancing (with DJ Seth Damm) until midnight.
