(MIAMI) – Miami-Dade County Commission Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa and Miami-Dade’s Hispanic Affairs Advisory Board cordially invite the public to celebrate the start of Hispanic Heritage Month by attending the opening reception of the 14th annual Hispanic Art Expressions Exhibit.

The event will take place on Friday, Sept. 20 from 7 to 10:30 p.m. at the Miami International Airport VIP Consular Lounge, Concourse F, 1640 NW 42nd Ave. Hors d’oeuvres will be served.
