An artist finds his muse – and gets more than he expected.
As an uprising rocks his Harlem neighborhood on a hot summer night, artist Bill Jameson is more focused on finishing his latest work: three paintings representing three types of Black womanhood. More than his artistic vision is challenged by the arrival of an unexpected muse, who refuses to be bound by his shallow assumptions of all that Black womanhood can be. This reflection on how art truly reflects life is directed by Obie Award winner Brandon J. Dirden (director of August Wilson’s Radio Golf and King Hedley II) and features Crystal Dickinson (A Raisin in the Sun, August Wilson’s Seven Guitars). Production sponsored by Bank of America.
