Minneapolis Showcases One Of A Kind Tribute To Prince
I have to be honest. I’m not a huge Prince fan. I know that it’s a cardinal sin to say what I just said in Minnesota, but it’s the cold, hard truth. Deal with it. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have respect for his body of work though.
The man was immensely talented. On several occasions, instead of hiring studio musicians to record on his albums, he would often just play all of the instruments himself. Even though I’m not big on that style of music, that’s still pretty darn impressive if you ask me.
I may not be a fan, but I know plenty of people who are and will take up any opportunity to celebrate his life and musical legacy. If you or someone you know happens to be a Prince fan, you might want to check out the “Prince From Minneapolis” art exhibit at the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis.
The exhibition showcases stunning images by local photographers who focused their lenses on the Purple One as he was establishing his look, his sound, and his identity. It also showcases art dolls of Prince in various settings, glasswork, a mural and more —all Prince-related. You can visit the exhibit every day of the week besides Monday from now through June 17th. Not to mention, admission is free.
