In a report from CBSN Minnnesota, the 16-foot by 24-foot mural, which is titled, “I Would Die 4 U,” will be installed Monday in the airport’s tram level lobby of Terminal 1. The mural was created by Minneapolis graffiti writer Rock Martinez.

Prior to its upcoming arrival at the Minneapolis airport, the mural was on display at the Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota and the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle. The mural will be on display until next January.

In related news, Lizzo revealed in a recent interview that Prince had offered to produce an album for her prior to his death. In a previous interview, the “Truth Hurts” artist discussed her relationship to the guitar virtuoso, and how she valued his support.

“I used to be so upset that I never had co-signs,” she said. “I was like, ‘I’m too weird for the rappers and too black for the indies.’ I was just sitting in this league of my own. To be embraced by Prince and co-signed, I am eternally grateful for that.”
