Art Print Notes:
I was in High School the first time I saw the beautiful Fox Theatre sign over Peacthree Street in Atlanta. I didn’t live particularly near Atlanta but we had gone on a winter field trip to see Cats. Sometimes it seems like yesterday instead of well, I’ll keep that to myself thank you! Ha!
But as someone who loved old things from an early age, the vintage beauty of the Atlanta Fox Theatre sign made a lasting impression on me. I loved the vivd eye-catching red and the yesteryear styling. It was a fun first introduction to the Fox Theatre for sure. For anyone who has visited that Atlanta icon, the sign is just the tip of the iceberg in a captivating piece of late 1920’s movie palace architecture. The Fox might be a little over the top even for a building that was meant to be theatrical!
I didn’t know the full history of the Fox Theatre on that long ago day. I had no idea that in the 1970’s the Fox was slated to be demolished to make way for office buildings. Imagine that the Fox Theatre Sign looming ahead could have been nothing but a memory for older citizens of Atlanta. Luckily the near destruction of the Fabulous Fox was a wake-up call for preservationists in Atlanta to save a little of the old in what is unquestionably a modern American city.
Instead Atlanta’s Fox Theatre went on to have a second life as a cultural hub in the city. It’s a place where people flock for special summer showings of movies as well as musicals and more. How many special memories have been made in the old theatre that stands behind the Fox Theatre sign in Atlanta?
Do you have your own special memories of the Fox? Maybe you and someone you love have a special place in your story for tor the Fox? Or maybe you want a reminder of a great show you saw there? I hope you will pause for a moment and let me know what attracted you to my Atlanta art in general and this Fox Theatre sign print in particular!
Wonder what past print buyers think?
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.

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.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
