Say My Name Flyer Revised.png

Police brutality... Hate Crimes... Senseless acts of violence against African Americans in our country have become so commonplace that, once the spotlight is removed from one story in the media, we move on to the next, leaving a trail of forgotten victims behind.


"Say My Name" is an art experience aimed at remembering and honoring those whose lives were taken too soon. 


Come view this emotion filled art experience and other artwork by South Carolina artist Amanda Polito. You can learn more about Amanda and her work here:

Join us at Durham's Ponysaurus Brewing on Sunday June 4, 2023 between 2pm-5pm.  Admission is Free.

About the artist:

"Amanda Polito, based in South Carolina, is a painter and free spirit that loves nature, family, fur and feather babies, and the arts. She received a studio art degree from the College of Charleston in 2001, with a specialty in painting. 


After putting painting on the backburner to have a family about 20 years ago, she recently picked up her brushes again to follow her passion. She enjoys folk art as well as abstract, full of texture, that provides an experience. Her works are for sale, as well as creating custom works per request."
