Art Print Description:
There’s just something about the style of old signs like the Alabama Theatre Marquee that speak to some of us. Those old marquees hearken back to the golden age of American movie palaces. It was a time when those old theaters were a new and different experience. Vaudeville stages were not yet a thing of the past and any night out at the movies was an unparallelled adventure. Not only did the movies provide an experience of being transported to another world, the theaters themselves were built in a fantastical style.
And the Alabama Theatre Marquee in Birmingham exemplifies that style. Imagine this classic old sign in the night sky in the 1920s in a world where the electric light is still a relatively new invention! It’s a beautiful sight today but it must have been truly magical back then!
The vintage style of the Alabama Theatre marquee was what I wanted to capture in this blueprint inspired artwork. It evokes a feeling of a long ago design made of that classic old sign before it ever reached into the skies in downtown Birmingham. After being well worn by the builders, perhaps it has spent the passing decades in the back of an old cabinet? Thus the signs of patina you see in this artwork.
This Birmingham print is based on detailed drawings done by the US Government’s Historic American Building Survey in the 1990s. They documented the historic building as well as the Alabama Theatre Marquee in some detail at the time. Each and every bulb in this detailed artwork reflects the actual vintage sign. Even with such a detailed starting point, the level of precision made creating such a refined piece of art quite time consuming but nonetheless enjoyable.
Do you have fond memories of the Alabama Theatre Marquee or is it the vintage style that speaks to you?

The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
We ordered several of your pieces for hallways and a few offices at our business. Everything turned out great.

Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I got my prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!

…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!! Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
