2011 Jazz Fest Posters Unveiled

New Orleans Jazz & Heritage FestivalWGNO

Jimmy Buffet is the subject of this year's Jazz Fest poster. 

Garland Robinette painted the picture of a young Jimmy Buffet playing his guitar on a French Quarter corner.

This year's Congo Square poster is homage to Matthew "Fats" Houston, who strut the streets as the Grand Marshall of many second line parades in New Orleans.

The poster is a remake of an official Jazz Fest poster that appeared 35 years ago.

Ninth Ward native Kenneth Scott, Jr. is the artist.
