On Friday night, the San Francisco Art Exchange hosted a reception for their latest exhibition, "Art of Prince", featuring the work of artist and designer Anthony Malzone. The show included seven pieces that have been used on Prince's website or for concert posters in Europe. Below are some pics from the event which was well attended and funky - local DJ's Bombhiphop were in the house spinning Prince tunes all nite.
If you missed the live broadcast we did from the event, you can watch the archive of it here. Anthony gave us a great tour of his work and shared some nice tidbits about working with the purple one. And we talked to some fans who were having a good time at the party.
So, what's your favorite piece of the seven that were on display? Not sure any are left to buy however. On Friday night, Anthony tweeted this: "Thank you to everyone who made it out/tuned in for the live stream. One man purchased the entire collection!!!!!!!"- DrFB
Hey purple people,
We had someone in San Francisco broadcast live so that all of you who couldn't make it would at least be able to peek in on the event.
We took questions and interviewed Anthony Malzone and some Prince fans who attended.
Hope you all enjoyed it.-Dr.FB

As we told you previously, Prince has an art exhibit opening up in San Francisco entitled "The Art Of Prince" by Anthony Malzone.
The reception will be on Friday and YOU, or as Prince would say, U R invited!
To get on the list, either call 800.344.9633 or shoot an email to email@example.com and you will be put on the guest list.
The reception is from 5 P.M. to 8 P.M. and Dave Paul and Jeff Harris will be spinning Prince music during that time as well.
Anthony let us know that the prints are going for $1.000 a piece limited to a 100 and for members of Prince's official web site, the prints should be 15% off.
A fresh expression of Prince’s celebrated creative vision, The Art of Pr...ince will receive its world premiere at SFAE. Each of the seven limited edition, fine art digital prints are hand-signed by Malzone with an official watermark. Elegant, striking, playful and enigmatic, this exhibition offers fans a brilliant new passage into the world of Prince.
So check out the art, listen to Prince music, talk with Anthony Malzone and wonder if that Coachella DVD is coming out...I mean ask him questions about the artwork and if Anthony wants to set anything aside for a blogger.
If any of you attend, hit us up and let us know how it was.-Dr.FB
We got an update from someone who called the gallery who will be hosting The Art of Prince event that will take place in San Francisco in early December.

We got word today of a new art show opening in San Francisco on December 9th. "Art of Prince" will feature works by Anthony Malzone, whose designs have been featured extensively on Prince's website, as well as the poster for Prince's August 2009 show in Monaco.
All of the prints in the show are limited-edition, numbered and signed by the artist. The show will be at the San Francisco Art Exchange in Union Square.
The exhibition opens December 9, with a public reception on December 11. Lotusflow3r members will be able to purchase Malzone's art at a discount.
