About This Image

Chicago Harbor Lighthouse Art Print by Mark Tisdale

This Chicago Harbor Lighthouse art print features a beautiful day with blue skies, great clouds, and a sailboat on the waters of Lake Michigan in the foreground. This old lighthouse was originally built for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition which was held in Chicago. In 1919 it was moved to its current location to the east of Navy Pier. When the light was built in the late 19th century it featured cutting edge equipment and construction to showcase new technologies for the exposition.  The old harbor light was added to the US National Register of Historic Places in the 1980s. The coast guard quit using the light in 2005 and transferred ownership to the city of Chicago who is trying to preserve and maintain the historic lighthouse. As other historic lights on the great lakes have been demolished it reminds us how quickly this era of life along Lake Michigan is fading into the past.

This Chicago Harbor Lighthouse art print is based off photos from one of my trips there years ago. When I saw this lighthouse on a visit to Chicago years ago, I had no idea about the history of the light. I just thought it had a beautiful appearance  and I admit I’m simply a sucker for old lighthouses. I felt that the lighthouse almost on the horizon was a beautiful backdrop to a passing sailboat. There’s a real sense of life on the water which I think may resonate with some who call the Chicago area home.

I would love to hear what attracted you to this Chicago Harbor Lighthouse art print. Do you have special memories of this lighthouse or do you simply love the history of these old buildings? Maybe it reminds you of days sailing on Lake Michigan? Or maybe some combination of all those? For me, it’s a reminder of a beautiful day on the waterfront in Chicago. There’s a real feeling of tranquility and peace that comes with this image for me.

This print is available in a range of sizes from small keepsake sized prints to large pieces of wall art and in a variety of print formats. If you have any questions about ordering prints or general comments or questions about this image, you may send me a message.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
