First in the series by Sharon Dinkins & Thorn Grafton. The poster depicts
an umbrella-wielding grand marshal in a typical pose leading one of New
Orleans' unique marching jazz bands. The umbrella not only adds impact
to the marshal's "second-line" dance, but protects him from the city's
dual weather pattern: Too much sun and too much rain. The nature of the
series as a limited-edition silk-screen poster was established with
this first print.
1,000 numbered prints plus a second printing of 300 numbered prints. 18" x 24".
Poster originally sold for $5.
