Hispanic Heritage Month

Artwork from Hispanic Heritage Month Terrace Gallery

Mayor Buddy Dyer and District 2 City Commissioner Tony Ortiz with join our community to celebrate our community’s diversity by becoming a sponsor of the City of Orlando’s Hispanic Heritage Month festivities from September 15 to October 15, 2022.

The Hispanic Heritage Month national theme is “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation." The theme encourages us to ensure that all voices are represented and welcomed to help build stronger communities and a stronger nation.

The city celebrates the culture and traditions of U.S. residents who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico, and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America, and the Caribbean by hosting several activities, including a community celebration event with Hispanic food, music, and entertainment, an art exhibition at the City Hall's Terrace Gallery featuring art pieces from local Hispanic visual artists, and more.

The arts are an intrinsic part of the Hispanic heritage and culture, for this reason, the City of Orlando hosted an Open Call for local artists interested in showcasing the richness of Latin American history and heritage through their art.

After evaluating all the art submissions, a diverse group of 27 Hispanic visual artists were chosen to showcase their art pieces at the city’s Hispanic Heritage Month Art Exhibition in the Terrace Gallery at Orlando City Hall.

The art exhibition runs from September 16 – November 14, 2022, and residents and visitors are encouraged to visit the Terrace Gallery to enjoy a beautiful display that enhances the rich Latin American culture and heritage through the artistic creativity and lens of our beloved visual artists.
