Along with the official Jazz Fest lineup, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival organizers today revealed the festival's official commemorative posters. The main poster is a colorful rendering of the late Fats Domino by artist Terrance Osborne, while the Congo Square poster is an image of Big Freedia by Kevin Brisco Jr.

Osborne's image features Domino playing piano on a small stage on a curving New Orleans street, while Brisco's features the Queen of Bounce standing in a doorway. According to the posters' official representative, Art4Now, "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Congo Square at Jazz Fest poster has many firsts: First rapper, first gay man and first pop vocalist portrayed by an unpublished artist, Kevin Brisco, Jr., another first."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 on sale now for $69 apiece, with signed and overpainted posters available at higher financial tiers.
