French Quarter Festivals, Inc.
Local Art Magnet
This is the magnet your fridge is missing! A fun design, by local artist Simon Hardeveld, that will always remind you of French Quarter Festival. The magnet measures at 2.75" height.
Simon Hardeveld is New Orleans’ most well-known French folk-art painter. Born in France and later moving to the United States to start three of his own restaurants, with wife and native New Orleanian Maria Hardeveld, Simon found his true calling to be a painter at his brasserie in Metairie when customers always wanted to buy his signs behind the counter. Most well-known for his set design work on New Orleans evening news, WGNO News with a Twist, Simon has been commissioned by restaurants, stores, locals, and tourists to create special original paintings that capture the spirit of New Orleans.
