CHICAGO (AP) — The National Museum of Mexican Art plans an exhibit honoring late Chicago first lady Maggie Daley.

The museum exhibit "Maggie Daley: A Tribute by Chicago's Youth" opens Oct. 5 and runs through Feb. 17. The museum asked a group of young artists to create and curate a tribute to Daley, wife of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley. The teens worked together for several weeks to organize the exhibition.

Last month Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that a new 20-acre park along downtown Chicago's lakefront would be named after Maggie Daley. Daley died in November after battling breast cancer.
