Ongoing activities

 

 

 

  • Get crafty like it’s 1999! Bring your own artwork or create an offering at our craft station to add to a Prince Celebration Shrine.
  • Marvel at the students and faculty from Juxtaposition Arts, some of the city’s most talented designers, as they create drawings in the moment to capture the spirit of the event.
  • Stop by the purple hair station, courtesy of Curl Power Salon, to be sure “you got the look” – a Prince-inspired purple do.
  • Let’s go crazy. Sip cocktails and munch on some of Prince’s favorite snacks throughout the night.
