Detroit Abstracts: Penobscot Building

Detroit Abstracts: Penobscot Building

10.00 25.00

The Penobscot Building is one of the finest examples of an early Art Deco style skyscraper not only in Detroit but in the United States. The office tower was completed in 1928 at a time when Detroit was booming economically for its industrial prowess. This portrait captures the tower at a unique angle, courtesy of Detroit's French-inspired radial downtown plan. Just as avenues in the French tradition "terminate" at a visual object, Monroe Avenue provides an oblique iconic view of the Penobscot, curating the journey of both pedestrians and drivers as they enter the heart of the city. 

Your purchase includes: (1) 18" x 24" high-quality digital image with a 300 DPI resolution perfect for printing, printable display card with building facts, printing instructions, and the freedom to print as many of these as you'd like. Bring a piece of Detroit's history into your home today.

What is an Urban Portrait?

Urban Portraits are carefully framed photographs of unique moments in the built environment that make you feel as if you were right there experiencing the moment for yourself. They're equal parts artistic and educational. Art because they're perfect for decorating any empty wall in your home or office. Educational because they always spark up interesting conversations. However you decide to use them, just make sure you show them off. Each image is completely original and digitally optimized for maximum printing quality. They come in 3 color versions: Original Color (OG), Abstract Color, and Black & White. Cities like Detroit have their own personal stories to tell. Our Urban Portraits capture those stories in the form of artwork you can take home with you.
