Along with the official 2018 Jazz Fest lineup, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival organizers also shared the festival's official 2018 commemorative posters. The main poster is a colorful drawing of the late Fats Domino by artist Terrance Osborne, while the Congo Square poster is an image of the Queen of Bounce herself, Big Freedia, by Kevin Brisco Jr.
Osborne's poster image features Domino playing piano on a small stage on a curving New Orleans street, while Brisco's features Freedia standing in a doorway next to a piano and record player. According to the Art4Now website, "This installment of the Congo Square at Jazz Fest poster has many firsts: First rapper, first gay man and first pop vocalist portrayed by an unpublished artist, Kevin Brisco, Jr., another first."
Both posters are currently on sale for $69 apiece, with signed and overpainted posters available at higher prices. Be sure to get yours today!
