"Cuando era una nina la casa Warner en la Pequena Habana era mi lugar favorito, la majestuosa mansion con sus impresionantes columnas y su localizacion al pie del puente de la primera calle y el Rio Miami era para mi un simbolo de la belleza de Miami, hoy la casa, gracias a los esfuerzos de Pedro Pablo Pena ha sido restaurada a su esplendor y es el Miami Hispanic Cultural Arts Center. El dia 7 de febrero tendre una exhibicion alli, guarden la fecha en sus calendarios y les dare los detalles proximamente" -

The third story is a conservatory with six music studios offering instruction in wind and string instruments, guitar and piano, as well as and an opera and choral studio, and a recording studio.
The original colonial style building will be complemented by contemporary architecture housing state of the art ballet studios, designed by architect Omar A. Morales.
