Navy Pier - Chicago Art Print
The subject of this Chicago art print is the landmark Navy Pier. The pier which stretches into Lake Michigan was opened in 1916 and was originally known simply as the Municipal Pier. It wasn't until the 1940's that the pier became known as Navy Pier due to its use as a Navy training center during World War II.
Since then the uses for the landmark have evolved but in the past couple of decades it has become a location for shopping, dining, and entertainment. As a visitor to Chicago on frequent business trips years ago, I accidentally discovered Navy Pier while looking for places to see the skyline from the lake. I wasn't looking for any entertainment aside from unique vantage point offered by the pier but I found the destination itself was a fun and beautiful Chicago landmark. This Chicago art print features Navy Pier on a beautiful spring afternoon. The trees on the pier have only just begun to leaf out and are a beautiful hue of spring green.
