Meet the artist behind the official 2017 Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo Poster.

If you caught a glimpse of the official poster design for the 2017 Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo, the bright colors immediately jump off of the canvas.

This year’s president Barry Kern recently unveiled the poster at Boomtown Casino. Kern says the colorful design has already generated a great response.

“I think it’s something that will sell out for sure and will be a big collector’s item,” Kern said.

The artist behind this year’s poster is also one of Mardi Gras’ greatest minds.¬†We talk to this year’s official poster artist, Manuel Ponce, to learn what inspired his work of art and his very important connection to Mardi Gras.
