This Toomer’s Drugs print was the result of a request of an Auburn alum who follows my work. But it was one of those requests that fit in nicely with my existing body of Auburn art! It’s always a pleasure to fulfill a request, it’s a little more so when you know that others will enjoy this particular print as well.
Toomer’s Drugs is, of course, a major Auburn landmark and features in more than one of my prints already. For the uninitiated, Toomer’s Drugs has stood on this site for over a century. These days it’s a less a drug store more of a mixture of soda fountain and monument to tradition across from the campus of Auburn University. I really do have to wonder if the world would come to a screeching halt if Toomer’s ever vacated the corner that bears its name!
This Auburn print shows a red pickup truck in motion next to Toomer’s Drugs on the corner of College and Magnolia. The red really pops against the mostly blue tones of the artwork. It’s presented in a square format and captures the stylized letters of Toomer’s on the awning that wraps around the corner of the building. There’s something of a timeless nature to this particular print. It could span years of life at Auburn for the students who have passed by this place.
Does this Auburn print capture the spirit of Toomer’s Drugs for you? Remind you of days spent there in years gone by or maybe even yesterday? I hope you might take a moment and share your memories of Auburn or your thoughts specifically about this Toomer’s print? And as always, if you have questions about this print or any of my work, please don’t hesitate to send me a message. I’m happy to answer questions before and after your purchase.
The Auburn grad who originally requested this work ordered it printed on wood and loved it. I think it also looks great as a canvas print and framed wall art as well. If you have any questions about the available options, just let me know.
