I’m celebrating Prince today! He passed away three years ago, on April 21, 2016. I always felt connected to him since I am Purple Girl. Prince is a Twin Cities icon, which means there are always Prince events and memorials to take in. On our street art/mural tour, I found this mural of him on the side of a Minneapolis building. Today I’m posting it to honor him.
A few days after his death, Mom and I took a drive out to Paisley Park, which I did a blog post on back in 2016. Neither of us had ever been there, but it was very interesting. Having such a worldwide personality so close to where you live is a bit odd. The place was full of mourning fans, and TV stations.
In July of 2016, Mom and I went back out to Chanhassen to see the new Prince mural which was done by an artist from Sydney, Australia. It covers the one side of a movie theater. The location was pretty nice to get a decent photo.
Life is a special occasion that is to be cherished every minute of every day. It is truly a shame Prince died so young, and unnecessarily. His music will carry on forever, and Paisley Park now offers tours, but it is sad Prince is gone forever. At least the Twin Cities recognizes him with lots of purple, which is also my color.
