Celebrate Prince’s Minnesota roots by tracing the places where he lived, learned, and performed. Kristen Zschomler, professionally registered archaeologist and historian, will present her place-based Prince research at the former Bryant Junior High, where Prince attended school.
Kristen has worked throughout the Upper Midwest, the Southeast, and the Caribbean. Through her job with the Department of Transportation's Cultural Resources Unit, Kristen specializes in the rehabilitation of historic bridges. It was also through this job that she studied the historical significance of two of Prince's childhood homes that were located within a project area; however, as a lifelong Prince fan, she couldn't stop there.
Driven by a desire to know more about the man who created the "Minneapolis Sound" and his connections to his birth city, Kristen’s research took her to numerous Prince places throughout Minneapolis and its nearby suburbs, and to his family's story of relocation to and settlement in Minneapolis. The talk will focus on key locations associated with Prince up to the establishment of Paisley Park, and will illustrate how these places were critical in Prince's development as an artistic genius.
