Lake Harriet Band Shelter – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Lake Harriet Band Shelter:

The current incarnation of the Lake Harriet Bandshell was constructed in 1986. It stands on the site of previous buildings, some of which were destroyed by fire. The building was designed by the local architectural firm of Bentz Thompson Rietow. The architect was Milo Thompson. The building itself has a 30 foot by 25 foot glass in the back of the building that faces out towards the lake, so as you look into from the front, you can see the lake and any activity on it. The bandshell has a seating capacity of about 900. The bandshell underwent a major refurbishing in 2004. The Park Board itself did not have the funds available, so local businessman Mark McGowan organized groups of volunteers, funded by private donations, to repaint the Bandshell, refectory and sailing pavilion. Working in tandem with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the exterior of the building was painted light brown (it had been blue) and some upgrades to the sound system were done, along with the large glass plate being replaced with a thicker, stronger glass. During the summer months concerts are held in the building with a wide variety of music being represented. The building is now also available to rent to hold wedding ceremonies.

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Lee Castle:

Lee Castle, also known as "The Lee", is a large ornamental palace located in South Lanarkshire in Scotland. The building is the ancestral home of the Lockhart family, which owned it until the mid-20th century when it was sold. The grounds the castle sits on covered many acres of land, most of which was broken up and sold in lots.

Milwaukee Depot, Minnesota – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Milwaukee Depot:

The Milwaukee Depot - also called the Old Milwaukee Road Depot - was a depot in downtown Minneapolis that brought trains into the city for seven decades. The structure was built in 1899, and the last train left in 1971. It was a travel and business hub, built in the Renaissance Revival Style. The interior was beautiful, with white marble floors, a ceiling of paneled oak and brown and cream colored bricks made up the walls. As Minneapolis grew, the depot was very active with dozens of trains coming and going daily. By 1971, however, the train traffic slowed to a stop and all service was cut. The building sat unused for many years, until 1998 when the property was developed and a large complex constructed, incorporating much of the original parts of the building. In the complex is an indoor water park, a center for the history of the building, hotels, parking lot and a seasonal ice skating rink.

Minneapolis City Hall, Minnesota – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Minneapolis City Hall:

The Minneapolis City Hall - also called the Minneapolis Courthouse - was designed in 1888 by the architectural firm of Long & Keys. Construction on the building went on until 1909 and the final cost was in the area of $3.5 million dollars, considerably more expensive than the original $1.5 million that was budgeted for the project. It replaced an earlier building that served as the city hall, but that was too small to fit the ever expanding city's needs. The design is based on the Allegheny County Courthouse in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The building's style is known as "Richardsonian Romanesque" At the time, it was the tallest building in the city, and remained so until 1929 when the Foshay Tower was built. The exterior of the building is very rough looking, and the blocks used are made from Ortonville Granite and weigh in the area of 20 tons.

Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens:

The Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens is a large park that covers about 11 acres in the western part of the downtown area. It sits in front of the Walker Art Center, which operates it in connection with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. It is one of the largest open air, urban sculpture gardens in the world and features important works from many prominent 3D artists and sculptors. The most famous and recognizable of these is the 'Spoonbridge & Cherry" by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. The grounds also includes a large conservatory that houses a glass sculpture called "Standing Glass Fish." At one time, the park was connected to Loring Park to the east, but the construction of I-94 cleaved the park in two. However, with the addition of pedestrian bridge designed by Siah Armajani the two parts of the park were again connected.

Minneapolis Skyline – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Minneapolis Skyline:

The Minneapolis skyline includes many notable buildings, including some of the first "skyscrapers" in the central part of the United States. Several prominent architects have been employed in the design of some of the buildings, such as H. H. Richardson (Minneapolis City Hall) and I.M. Pei. The downtown area is one of the main hubs of business and financial activity in the region. Some of the buildings house offices for the top companies in the world, such as American Express and IBM. The Foshay Tower, built in 1929, was one of the earliest tall buildings in Minneapolis and remained so until 1971. Unfortunately, in the collapse of Wall Street Foshay lost his fortune. Much of the downtown area languished for decades, and the area called "the Gateway district" was especially bad and rundown. During the years of 1957-1956 nearly 1/3 of the entire downtown area had been leveled. Freeways breathed new life into the city with connections to the ever expanding suburbs and Saint Paul. In the following years, building was slow into the 1980's, with only the IDS Tower being the really remarkable building that was added. However, afterwards several others were added, including the Wells Fargo Center, the Campbell Mithun Tower (previously Piper Jaffray) and Capella Tower, built in 1992 as the headquarters of First Bank.

Minnesota State Capitol Building, Saint Paul – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Minnesota State Capitol:

The Minnesota State Capitol is located in Saint Paul. The building was completed in 1905 at a cost of $4.5 million dollars. The architect was Cass Gilbert, who designed many prominent buildings in the central US. Gilbert took his inspiration from Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome. The unsupported dome of the building is the second largest in the world, behind Saint Peter's. It is the third building to serve as Minnesota's capitol. The first burned down in 1881, and the second was deemed too small almost immediately after completion. One of the most notable features of the building are the gold gilded horses at the base of the dome in the front. This piece of art was designed and sculpted by Daniel Chester French and Edward Clark Potter. The four horses represent the power of nature: earth, fire, water and wind. At one time, the building had German quotations on the wall, but these were painted over during the tide of anti-German sentiment during World War II. These were later restored. The capitol building houses the Senate, House of Representatives, the Office of the Attorney General and the Office of the Governor.

Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Neuschwanstein Castle:

The Neuschwanstein Castle is a large impressive castle built on a rugged hill near the town of Fussen in Bavaria, Germany. The castle was built by King Ludwig II as a tribute to Richard Wagner. It is an extremely popular tourist destination, with an estimated 60 million people having visited it. The building was visualized by Christian Jank and realized by architect Eduard Riedel. The palace was built over the ruins of two other castles, which were completed destroyed in the process of construction. It was completed in 1873, at a massive cost to the government and people in which hundreds of craftsmen were employed. During it's construction, the castle was modified and enlarged. As it went up so did the expenses. The king and some of his family moved into the palace in 1884. Richard Wagner, whom the building was dedicated to, died in 1883 and was never able to set foot in the palace. Ludwig himself only was able to live there 172 days, before he died in 1886. The palace was never completed, and the massive expenses incurred by it's construction nearly bankrupted Bavaria. Although the official story has King Ludwig dying of accidental drowning, some theories exist that he was in fact murdered by orders of some members of the government. Ludwig was obsessed with swans, and the interior and exterior is decorated with dozens of them.
