Vintage Chicago Theatre - Rainy Night Canvas Print
The subject of this rainy night canvas print is a vintage Chicago Theatre street scene. This is based off of a 1949 black and white photograph originally from Look Magazine which was published from 1937-1971. Much of their vintage catalog of work was donated to the Library of Congress and provides a great view of America in the middle of the last century.
When I spotted this vintage Chicago theatre scene, I loved the classic feel of Americana, city lights, and of course, that gorgeous old Chicago Theatre sign that is still greeting visitors to the theatre district in Chicago today.
This canvas art features a delightful scene even if you simply love vintage Americana, but especially if you love Chicago.

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.
