MFA Installs Herb Ritts’ Photo of Prince
As fans in Boston continue to mourn the death of Prince, the Museum of Fine Arts has installed a photo of the late musician.
On Friday, the MFA paid tribute to the music icon by putting an image from 1991 of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist on display. Titled “Prince (Hat with Chains),” the gelatin silver print photo was taken by famed photographer Herb Ritts.
The image’s accompanying description includes several lines from Prince’s 1984 hit, “Let’s Go Crazy.”
Electric word, life: It means forever
and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else: the afterworld
A world of never ending happiness–
You can always see the sun, day or night
Fans can check out the photo of Prince at the MFA’s Sharf Visitor Center.
