"Prince from Minneapolis" will be held April 16-18, 2018, in the Humphrey Center of Public Affairs and nearby buildings at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. It will coincide with other events commemorating the work and life of Prince that whole week, starting Saturday, April 14.
The Humphrey Center is located on the West Bank of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. Parking is limited, so it is recommended that attendees use public transit. Those driving can park on campus at the 21st Avenue Ramp, the 19th Avenue Ramp, and Lot 94.
From the Airport: Take the Blue Line Light Rail to the Cedar-Riverside Station. Walk east to Cedar Avenue. Follow Cedar Avenue north until you pass Midwest Mountaineering on your right, then turn right and walk across 19th Avenue South to the Humphrey Center, the building at the cul-de-sac.
From Downtown: Take the Green Line Light Rail to the West Bank station. When you step off the train enter the ground floor of Blegen Hall in front of you, and follow signs for the Humphrey Center.
Weisman Art Museum
One panel discussing Prince's relationship to art will take place at the Weisman Art Museum.
While there, be sure to check out their Prince from Minneapolis exhibit running December 9th through June 17th, featuring work by photographers Allen Beaulieu, Nancy Bundt, Terry Gydesen, and Robert Whitman, who photographed Prince in his early years, helping to craft and disseminate his now iconic image and identity.
We scheduled the symposium so you can attendCelebration 2018 at Paisley Park, Prince's legendary creative sanctuary in nearby Chanhassen. Getting there by bus is difficult. Instead, take a Lyft or Uber.
