This Community Culture Commerce edition we celebrate Women’s Small Business Month with Artist Olivia Bruce, Filipino American Heritage at UMPUKAN, and a new drop from our H Street NE ‘22 capsule collection!

Meet the Artist Brunch ft. Olivia Bruce

Chris Cardi Inc. and Sospeso invite to Meet The Artist Brunch featuring Olivia Bruce hosted by BeMo!

Olivia is a watercolor painter and mixed media artist with roots in the DMV. A self proclaimed color enthusiast, experimenting with earth tones and natural plant dyes, Olivia’s unique use of color amplifies the humanness and intimacy of her subjects in each body of work.

Join us for an engaging conversation with Olivia and preview art ahead of her 2023 solo exhibition. We look forward to hosting you as we celebrate our creative community this Women’s Small Business Month. To secure brunch seating, early arrival is strongly suggested. Click here to RSVP!
