Documentary film for the mural “The Wait” at Mothership this Thursday

3301 Georgia Avenue, NW

From Nekisha Durrett:

“Thanks to generous funding from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, my mural The Wait can now be viewed on the facade of Mothership Diner in DC. Please join me at Mothership Diner on Thursday, February 19th from 6-7PM to properly celebrate the mural. I will also screen a short documentary film that explores my piece, my creative process, and the ever changing neighborhood of Park View. I collaborated with the very talented and inspired local filmmaker, Lorie Shaull, to document the production of the mural and its community impact. She captured a splendid snapshot of Park View and my foray into public art. AND also on view will be several photographs by two of my photography students from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Museum Studies program, Kenyssa Evans and Tayvon Taylor who signed on to further document the project.

Late notice, I know – but REALLY hope to see you THIS Thursday. It will also be one of the last times to enjoy this warm neighborhood haunt as, sadly, it will be closing its doors on Sunday, February 22nd.”
