Gala
2021 Virtual Benefit: History in the Making

May 26, 2021 at 6:00PM (EST)

A special evening of inspirational programming. We will begin with journey through the Hispanic Society’s history in Upper Manhattan. It will include a conversation between Luis A. Miranda Jr, an icon of the arts in Upper Manhattan and whose life is featured in the recent HBO documentary Siempre Luis, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, an award-winning actor, performer and writer known for his groundbreaking Broadway musicals In the Heights and Hamilton. The program will also offer a sneak peek at our upcoming outdoor exhibition, Latinx Diaspora: Stories from Uptown Manhattan, commissioned by HBO as part of the documentary.  The exhibition celebrates the rich history of the Latinx community and tells the story of its diaspora in New York City from the late 1800s to the present.  Hosted by Hispanic Society Chairman, Philippe de Montebello, the event will include unique stories and a behind-the-scenes look at our collections and landmarked buildings presented by Trustee and TV personality Bob Vila, as well as curators and conservators from the museum.
