A new exhibit dedicated to Prince is coming to Seattle's MoPOP museum on April 6.

The museum said the exhibit, titled "Prince from Minneapolis," will "explore both Prince's creative journey and his influence on other artists and fans."

"Prince from Minneapolis" will be part of the museum's general admission and will feature work from photographers Allen Beaulieu, Nancy Bundt, Terry Gydesen and Robert Whitman.

MoPOP Curator Brooks Peck said, "Prince embodied so many of the themes we like to explore at MoPOP. He drew on the work of the greats who came before him, yet created his own, truly original style and sound.

"He defied convention and broke boundaries, and he continues to inspire musicians as well as artists of all kinds to this day," Peck added.

The exhibition includes nearly 50 artifacts including photography from the beginning of Prince's career, costumes, a guitar, rare performance footage, and oral histories.
