On Friday, October 19, 2012, the Opa-locka Development Community Corporation (OLCDC) will host an evening dedicated to “The Art of Transformation,” a celebration of the historic past, present and bright future of the Opa-locka community. The event marks the kick-off of the Opa-locka “Community Gateways” program, a revitalization plan sponsored by the OLCDC, in collaboration with Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places, to remove the barricades situated in Magnolia North (formerly known as the “Triangle”) and to create visual, physical, and economically-sustainable design that involves and empowers the community, while converting the city into a true “Community of Choice.” Surrounded by private jets on the runway of the Opa-locka Executive Airport, guests will indulge in savory, delectable hors d’oeuvres, enjoy a full bar sponsored by Bacardi and dance to the music of soulful, pop and R&B group, EN VOGUE. Tickets are $100 per person.
