Purple monuments majesty

The tributes, remembrances, and celebrations of Prince Rogers Nelson have just begun, as the prolific musician made an impact across the world of music, style, and design that few will be able to match. The multiplatinum artist, who passed away at his home and studio, Paisley Park, in Chanhassen, Minnesota, will forever be associated with a unbelievable catalog of hits, a virtuoso’s mastery of the guitar, and, of course, the color purple. To honor and celebrate his incredible life, monuments and buildings around the world were lit up in the artist’s signature hue across the globe.
