Chicago Theatre Sign - Historic Landmark Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

This historic landmark canvas print features the Chicago Theatre sign. Built in 1921, the Chicago theatre has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979. That classic sign is the type of theatre marquee that is still emulated a century later in modern move theaters. It's simply classic and beautiful!

And of course, in Chicago this sign is iconic. It was listed as a Chicago landmark in 1983. Like many classic movie theatres today audiences are more likely to catch a live performance at this North State Street landmark.

I had a lot of fun with this Chicago Theatre sign artwork. First of all, it has one of my favorite colors, red! And in abundance! And the design details are simply rich. The rich colors in this canvas print suggest a sunny afternoon in Chicago's Theatre district.

What attracted you to this Chicago landmark canvas art? A connection with Chicago or a general love for these grand old movie palaces?

Canvas Prints - Product Information

Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.

After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.

When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.

Canvas Print Detail Sample

There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.

After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
