The exhibit will open in the cemetery's Woolworth Chapel in September for a limited time. Visitors can take a trolley between her mausoleum and the chapel itself.

On the exhibit's last day, the cemetery will host a concert at Cruz's mausoleum featuring her music and some from other Latin-American artists.
