Less than two weeks after the death of Prince, the the Artist Collective of West Virginia held a lovely tribute exhibition to honor the pop icon.  Officially titled "Royal Devotion", each of the pieces in the show was created by regional artists and directly inspired by Prince.  A punch bowl full of vokda and a tasty grape concoction ("purple rain") was free to all visitors.  Paintings were purchased, memories of the music legend exchanged.

Here are some photos of some art on display, information about the artists, and a few other snapshots.
