4.) Schmidt’s musical fresco
88 10th Street
Speaking of Minnesota’s favorite sons, the Prince inadvertently staged Schmidt’s musical fresco on the map thanks to a iconic 1977 photograph taken by Robert Whitman. Prince, who was only 19 at the time, was on the verge of capturing the music world. By the way, the transcription on the wall is, of course, an excerpt from Maurice Ravel’s Gaspar de la Nui.
5.) First Avenue

Another Minneapolis attraction to which the Prince has attracted international attention is First Avenue. The concert venue, which until the early 70’s was a bus station, has an appearance decorated with stars that are filled with the names of more iconic acts that adorned the stage. And the Star of the Prince stands out among all, for she is the only golden one.

Located about three blocks from US Bank Stadium, the stunning Guthrie Theater offers photographers two unique vantage points to take almost 360-degree shots of the Mississippi River and its east bank. The “Amber Box”, located on the ninth floor of the theater, is literally a huge transparent amber box, so feel free to add a filter to the natural room.

9.) Cereal belt sign
4 W Island Ave.
The Cereal belt sign on the island of Nicoletta has always been a favorite destination for photographers, but it took only about a year as the sign of the 40s was illuminated again after dark for more than 20 years. LEDs have replaced neon bulbs and incandescent bulbs, but the magic of kitsch remains.
