Gentrification, revitalization, conversion, renovation can make people feel “powerless, fearful, curious, excited,” Petworth artist Nekisha Durrett said in a recent documentary about her mural on a brick exterior wall of the former Mothership Diner on Lamont Street.

“My intention with this artwork was to present the various emotions people feel around this sort of change,” she said. The vibrant color and design are an apt symbol of the community’s esprit de corps.
