Miami’s Haitian Heritage Museum, the only museum dedicated to Haitian art and culture outside of Haiti, is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its founding.

According to CaribJournal:

The museum, which is located in the Design District arts neighbourhood of Miami, is marking the occasion with its 10th Annual Gala on Feb. 22.

The event will feature a keynote address by Haitian-American Mayor Harry LaRosiliere from Plano, Texas, with honorees to include Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jean-Monestime and Leslie Buckley, joined by African dance troupe Delou Africa.

The museum has been home to a number of high-profile exhibitions in recent years, including the first exhibition of the Musee du Pantheon National Haitien, Haiti’s national museum, outside of Haiti.
