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.

Spoonbridge and Cherry Sculpture – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Spoonbridge and Cherry:

The Spoonbrige & Cherry - also called the Spoon & Cherry - is a large piece of 3D artwork located in the MinneapolisSpoonbridge and Cherry. It was completed between 1985-1989 by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. It was a gift to the gardens from Frederick R. Weisman in honor of his parents; William and Mary Weisman. The materials used in the making of the sculpture is aluminum, paint and stainless steel. The size is approximately 354" tall, 618" long, and 162" wide. Oldenburg is known for his oversized versions of ordinary objects, and has other pieces in the Walker Art Museum, including one of a giant overturned bag of french fries. While the design of the sculpture is due mostly to Oldenburg, his wife helped develop the piece and added the element of the cherry. The spoon weighs about 5,8000 pounds and the cherry is 1,2000. The items were created in a shipbuilding yard in New England. The sculpture became an immediate success and anchor point of the drawing, while the image of the piece became a recognizable image for the city of Minneapolis and the impressive gardens filled with wonderful works of art.

Witches Hat Water Tower, Minneapolis – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Witch's Hat Water Tower:

The Witch's Hat Water Tower is located in the historic Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. The park dates back to 1874, when real estate magnate Louis Menage began to lay out the foundations for new subdivisions in this area of the city. The tower itself, designed by architect Frederick William Cappelen, was built in 1913. It is one of the few remaining towers in the city. It held 150,000 gallons of water when it was active. It is believed that the Bob Dylan song "All Along the Watchtower" was inspired by this tower, which resides on one of the highest points in the city and would have been easily visible from the "Dinkytown" area in which Dylan once lived. The tower was decommissioned in 1952 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
