About This Image

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.

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.
