That colorful, blossoming tribute to Prince in a Citrus Heights neighborhood is attracting Prince fans from around the country. The painted picture of Prince, with the blooming crown has gone viral and is being dubbed the “Sacramento Prince Tree.”
Christine Stein, who made the tribute as a way to encourage more public art, says she’s had conversations with fans from as far away as Georgia, Florida and Minnesota with people leaving flowers, wax sculptures and other odd items. And while she welcomed the attention at first, she says she has since disconnected her doorbell, covered her windows and is going in and out the side of her home. She’s even gone as far as putting a fake number on the house.
