Navy Pier - Chicago Canvas Print
The subject of this Chicago canvas 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 canvas print features Navy Pier on a beautiful spring afternoon. The trees on the pier are coated in new leaves that are a beautiful hue of spring green.

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.
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.
