The Life and Music of Celia Cruz

Closed May 28, 2006

Over the course of a career that spanned six decades and took her from humble beginnings in Havana, Cuba to a world-renowned artist in the United States, Celia Cruz became the undisputed Queen of Latin Music. Combining a piercing and powerful voice with a larger-than-life personality and stage costumes, she was one of the few women to succeed in the male dominated world of Salsa music. This exhibition featured costumes and other objects, photographs, and music samples from throughout her career.

The website for this exhibition was retired in 2021 due to incompatibility with current web standards. A view of the previous home page can be seen below.
