Art Print Notes:
This Tech Tower print illustrates the heart of the historic Georgia Tech Campus. The Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Administration Building is an original piece of the campus. It was completed in 1888, shortly after Georgia Tech was founded.
The architecture of Tech Tower is a combination of Gothic revival which was very popular in the Victorian Era with hints of Romanesque style. The result is a truly classic college building, the type one usually sees on letterhead proclaiming college traditions.
Tech Tower may not be the official brad, but it’s definitely part of traditions at Georgia Tech. For generations, stealing the T from the top of Tech Tower was a frequent prank. In recent years, there was concern over students risking life and limb and stealing the T now carries the risk of expulsion. That combined with an array of theft deterrent devices has greatly reduced the frequency of this particular Tech tradition. Nowadays the “T” is more often taken through selfies and graduation photos on the campus grounds in view of Tech Tower.
This particular piece of art captures not only the T but the rest of the letters to as well as those great architectural lines of the old tower. I wanted to emphasize not only the architecture but the rich warm color of the bricks beneath cool blue Georgia skies. The result is a graphic modern take on a classic campus landmark. There’s a real sense of place for anyone who has visited the campus never mind those who are alumni of Georgia Tech.
Does this print take you back to your own days at Georgia Tech? Or is Tech Tower still in your future? I would love to hear what brought you to this particular piece of historic Georgia Tech artwork. Do stop to share your thoughts and if you have questions, just ask!
Note: Tech Tower along with other buildings at the core of the old campus is registered US Historic District.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
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.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
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’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!

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.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
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!
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 just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
