PRINCE ROGERS NELSON

 June 7, 1958 to April 21, 2016

COD:  Accidental drug overdose

CREMATED:  Some of the ashes are in the possession of a family member, but a portion of the ashes are

displayed in the atrium of Paisley Park.  The small box of ashes rests inside a miniature version

of Paisley Park with Prince's "symbol" on the front.  The replica of the park is under a large, glass cube

approximately 4' x 4' in size.

 

 

This forty-foot tall mural of Prince festoons the side of the Chanhassen Cinema in Chanhassen, Minnesota.  The theater is little more than a mile from Paisley Park.  This breathtaking likeness is the work of Australian artist Mr. G Hoete.

 


 

The house at 1244 Russell Avenue North in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  This is the house where Prince lived from 1974 to 1977.  It is here that Prince began to develop the pop/funk music hybrid that would come to be known as "The Minneapolis Sound."
