Golden Dome of Savannah City Hall art print by Aberjhani. Our art prints are produced on acid-free papers using archival inks to guarantee that they last a lifetime without fading or loss of color. All art prints include a 1" white border around the image to allow for future framing and matting, if desired.

The shining gold-plated dome of Savannah’s City Hall is one of the city’s most outstanding landmarks. City Hall itself was designed by architect Hyman W. Witcover and constructed from 1904-1905. The architectural style of the granite and limestone building is considered Renaissance Revival, mostly meaning it was built at a time when the South was still recovering from the American Civil War. The dome seen here was copper when first constructed and layered over with gold leaf in 1987.
I took this fine art digital photograph standing almost 3 blocks from City Hall when the sunlight reflecting off the dome caught my attention. The resulting natural frame was interesting because I was standing directly beneath the tree branches in one square (or small park) while aiming for a shot above tops of trees in a another square further ahead. As shiny and pretty as the dome is by itself, I wanted to make sure the American flag on top of it got in the picture as well.
I was born and raised in the southeastern United States, then spent many years, while pursuing my education and serving in the U.S. Air Force, traveling around America and the world. Much of story is told in recent book releases like Greeting Flannery OConnor at the Back Door of My Mind and Dreams of the Immortal City Savannah. Artwork by me is featured on the cover of both books.
My last 4 public exhibits were at the Savannah/Hilton Head Airport Art Gallery in Savannah, Georgia, USA, and during a cultural arts event in the historic Lafayette Square in the same city. I am currently completing an artbook project on different challenge which humanity has been facing in the 2020s, with text contributions from writers around the world.
