Last Thursday (07/22), Big Hearts made its second appearance at Street Commerce, a local business located in Uptown Charlotte. Joining Miilo at Big Hearts were other local businesses and artists; Baddie Worldwide, Hella Scars, Phoebe Loungewear and Stevie Reyes!
“Big Hearts is more than just an art gallery and pop-up shop, it is my way to connect with my audience in person as well as bring other amazing creators and small businesses into the light” Miilo reveals. “In this day and age, it is so important to support your community because after all, we are all in this together."
The event was a huge success with over 200 people who came to support. As you walk into the venue, you have art displayed on the walls, a NEW series by Miilo and the first pop-up to the left is Troy with Hella Scars. In the next room, you have Shelbi with Phoebe Loungewear on the right and to the left of the room, you have Karla with Baddie Worldwide alongside Artist Stevie Reyes.
The atmosphere was one of a kind filled with relaxing vibes, drinks, music and the energy from the crowd. It was an event you didn’t want to miss! “It feels amazing and overwhelming to be in a room with all these outstanding people, they really do support and look out for our local businesses. I’ve never been more proud to be a part of a community that takes care of each other and wants to see everyone win!” Miilo exclaims.
