From a press release:
Join us for an opening reception and artist talk with Nekisha Durrett to celebrate the installation of Durrett’s iconic public artwork, Sweet, on Saturday, May 14th in the Petworth neighborhood.
Nekisha, a Petworth-based artist, designed the large scale, two-dimensional piece installed on the exterior façade of the 3Tree Flats building. She describes the piece: “Her hovering head one story tall, a young woman looks coolly over her Georgia Avenue with one bold, yellow bubbly adjective in a thought cloud over her flowing locks — Sweet. She looks toward the street observing traces of the past, the vitality of the present and future, and the prideful spirit of her evolving community.”
WHO: Cultural Development Corporation, JAIR LYNCH Development Partners and AHD, Inc.
WHAT: Opening reception and artist talk with Nekisha Durrett.
WHERE: 3Tree Flats lobby (3910 Georgia Avenue, NW)
WHEN: Saturday, May 14, 2-4pm
