A special evening of inspirational programming hosted by Hispanic Society Chairman, Philippe de Montebello, we will journey through the history of the Hispanic Society’s collections and landmarked buildings with trustee and TV personality Bob Vila, explore the history of the neighborhood with historian and author Matthew Spady, enjoy a conversation with Luis A. Miranda Jr, an icon of the arts in Upper Manhattan 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 organized in collaboration with Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), Latinx Diaspora: Stories from Upper Manhattan, and a behind-the-scenes look at our collections with curators and conservators from the museum. Music performance by singer and percussionist David Freyre.
