This Surf Ballroom illustration is part of the State Icons series. The historic rock n' roll landmark, which opened in 1948 (the original, built in 1934, had been across the street—it burned to the ground in 1947), is the last place Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper played before their fateful plane crash (aka "The Day the Music Died"). The ballroom is located in Clear Lake, Iowa.


  • Pale yellow, pale blue, brown, grey, and black illustration
  • Giclee print using archival paper and inks, so it will last a lifetime
  • Comes in a simple, black, handmade wooden frame (approx. 3.75" x 3.25" total) with recycled glass
  • Each illustration is signed by the artist
  • Frame is thick in depth, so it can stand on its own on a flat surface, or it can hang on the wall via a sawtooth hanger that's attached to the back
  • Frame is handmade by On The Level Woodworking
