2018 Satchmo SummerFest Poster
Artist: Lionel Milton
New Orleans artist Lionel Milton is this year’s Satchmo SummerFest poster artist. Milton started his career as a graffiti artist, and his colorful style and vibrant energy are captured in the poster, which features a young Louis Armstrong. Milton has been commissioned by collectors and companies worldwide, including Uber, ESPN, Red Bull, and Heineken. “I am honored to create the 2018 Satchmo poster. As an artist and native New Orleanian Satchmo’s music was part of my childhood. He was one of the greatest cultural contributors ever! My art is like visual jazz,” said Milton.
