Thanks guys. We knew where this print was going the moment we bought it. I'm trying to get another one to go on my wall in the kitchen (exposed too). I've grown to love simple black or white frames, and with this piece... the frame we felt was the right size, just enough to make it pop. Our landlord has made us promise to let him photograph it with all the art on the walls (prints and my stencils) before we leave, so he can use it to advertise the apartment whenever we decide to move out.
We love the brick wall, but it comes with it's own issues. It crumbles little pieces sometimes (because of the difference in temp between the inside and outside) which happens to almost any exposed brick wall, inside or out. Depending on the wall, you can have issues with insulation in the winter, so it's not all it's cracked up to be. But yes, you can hang almost anything on this wall... and it looks amazing.
For anyone from Chicago, April 7s did the frame the job and I highly recommend them.
