“The official Fillmore New Orleans grand opening poster was designed by New Orleans-based artist Monica Rose Kelly.  The poster celebrates and intertwines the vibrant spirit of New Orleans music and the unique psychedelic artistic style of the famous Fillmore posters from the 60s and 70s. Surrounded by musical elements, a banana flower goddess carries her marching stick, signaling the start of a parade of legendary musical performances to come. The banana flower is a resilient tropical flower found in every neighborhood across New Orleans and a unifying botanical emblem of the entire city. Monica embraced the early pioneers of Fillmore art (including works by Bill Graham’s former wife Bonnie Maclean) by showcasing powerful images of women juxtaposed amongst art nouveau styles, which she affectionately refers to as, Orleans Nouveau.”
