Prince from Minneapolis examines an icon's image and his influence on other artists and on fans.
At the start of his career, Prince worked to create a unique and dynamic professional image. He reached out to photographers in his local community, and several in Minneapolis participated in the construction and dissemination of what is now his legendary image and identity. Four of those photographers—Allen Beaulieu, Nancy Bundt, Terry Gydesen, and Robert Whitman—are showcased in this exhibition. With nearly 50 artifacts, including photos, artwork, a Prince guitar, and outfits from the Purple Rain Tour and film, guests will experience Prince at key moments in his career, from his early days to the Purple Rain tour and beyond.
