One of the best things about Jazz Fest is that artists of all kinds come together to shine a light on our city before and during the fest. Included in this bunch is 77 year old painter Peter Max who paints "psychedelic art" celebrating the unique people and places of NOLA--including the 1994 Jazz Fest poster. Check out his Joan of Arc statue painting and others at the Angela King Gallery on Royal Street. Meet the artist this Thursday!
