Artist Nekisha Durrett Screens Documentary of Her Mural, “The Wait”, at Mothership This Thursday

Artist Nekisha Durrett will be screening a short documentary film exploring her mural (“The Wait“), her creative process, and the ever changing Park View community this Thursday, February 19th, at Mothership from 6 -7 p.m.  “The Wait was funded by a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. This will be a bitter sweet event, as it will be one of the last times the community can gather at Mothership as they will be closing when the doors close on Sunday, February 22nd. But as that hasn’t happened yet, this is a wonderful opportunity to both celebrate the mural and show Mothership how much they will be missed.

The documentary is a collaboration between Durrett and local filmmaker, Lorie Shaull. Together they documented the production of the mural and its impact on the community. In addition to the screening, several photographs will be on display by two photography students from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Museum Studies program, Kenyssa Evans and Tayvon Taylor.

Below is a trailer of the documentary, providing an idea of what to expect.
