Prince fans, you can now view an enormous mural of the Purple Rain star in MSP Airport beginning Monday. The 16 x 24-foot painting will be located in Terminal 1 on the tram level.

Minneapolis muralist Rock Martinez created the piece back in 2017 and titled it “I Would Die 4 U.” It shows the entertainer holding a guitar with swirling colors and a purple Price symbol in the background.

The mural was previously on display at Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota and the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle. It will be on display at the airport through January 2021. There is also a new retail store dedicated to the star at the airport as well.
