Digital IG flier for PASS THE MIC. Black background. A drawing by Vinetta Miler sits on top of background taking up most of the frame - it is 3D-embossed, electric blue, violet, and periwinkle drawing of a person in a wheelchair taking a ramp onto a stage.On top of that are shapes outline in pink creating spaces for text. In the negative space of the image from top to bottom, left to right reads “this is a masked event! Venue is accessible to mobility devices!” “Hook&Loop presents: PASS THE MIC” “ a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Rotunda stage ramp OPEN MIC” “FREE! ** This event is free to attend, but Hook&Loop is actively raising funds to support our general operations and public programming. We will graciously accept donations of ANY amount!”. The words “sign up for our OPEN MIC!” are black and inside a bright orange star. A light pink line makes a rectangle and encapsulates the text and icons: an orange icon of a calendar + the text “Sept 21 2023”. Beneath that, a teal icon of a clock + the text ““Doors @ 4:30PM - Ribbon Cutting @ 5:30pm - OPEN MIC @ 6PM - 9PM”. Beneath that, a yellow icon of a house + the text “The Rotunda - 4014 Walnut st”.

Two images side by side.
The left image is a young Pam in a bright red dress painting at a desk. She is smiling and has long brown hair pulled back into a half-up hairstyle. She holds a paint brush in her left hand making a diagonal line cutting across the image with the brush handle. Her right hand is used to steady her motions. There is a picture of a cartoon boy in a red dress in the background.
The right image is a painting of the photograph from Pam's archive titled "Pam at Melmark." The painting is 16 inches by 20 inches and is created on watercolor paper using acrylic paint, quill pen, and paint markers. The painting shows Pam's face and arms in the foreground. Pam is smiling and holding a paintbrush. She is wearing a red and yellow shirt. She has peach skin and brown/gold hair. Over Pam's left shoulder is a depiction of a smiling figure with a red shirt and red hat, holding a bunch of grapes. The figure has black stars on their shirt and behind them is a yellow background with blue stars. Over Pam's right shoulder is a depiction of collaged yellow, orange, brown, and blue shapes on an off-white background.
