The Giant Purple Face of Prince: Very cool!

[Simmonds, 10/10/2021]
Giant Purple Face of Prince

It's so beautiful and unexpected, and totally represents what he meant to the community. Its unorthodox location symbolizes how integral he was to the town. He attend showings at the movie theater on which it's posted. He shopped at the nearby Byerly's grocery store. Across the parking lot is the Walgreen's where he filled his prescriptions right before he died.
