What a fantastic time I had last weekend at the Jazz Fest. New Orleans certainly knows how to throw a party! Great food, drink, and of course, MUSIC! The art was divine this year with Terrance Osborne’s beautiful poster.

Bruce Brice, Mardi Gras Indians
Mr. Thomas is known for his 1989 Fats Domino poster. They were both so humble and wonderful and very interested in my Human Trafficking Series.

Richard C. Thomas, God and Drew Brees! Who DAT!
