“It’s All Greek To Me”
Artist Simon’s painting for this year’s official festival poster is a joyful expression in his jubilant style! It’s All Greek to Anyone who crosses the threshold on Bayou St. John, as many New Orleanians can attest. Be sure to get your poster as soon as they go on sale — supplies are limited and this design is sure to sell out fast! 20 Signed and Numbered Prints and 230 Numbered Prints will be on sale at the Poster Booth; dimensions are 9.6” x 21.9”.

Silent Auction for the Original Simon Painting
Simon has generously donated his original artwork to the festival and all proceeds from our Silent Auction will benefit Holy Trinity Cathedral. The Silent Auction is going on now through the last day of the festival (Sunday evening, May 28). You can view the original painting at the Poster Booth throughout the Festival weekend. The current high bid is $500; if you’d like to place a bid for the painting please contact us with your name, bid ($25 increments), and contact information — good luck!

Please visit Simon of New Orleans’ Facebook page to learn more about the artist and his artwork.

Festival visitors can purchase prints of Byzantine icons suitable for framing that were created in the mid 1800s for the original Little Holy Trinity Church. Each icon print has a certificate of authenticity created by the Holy Trinity Archives Committee. New this year is a reproduction from Holy Trinity’s historic collection: an art print of the first little church commemorating 150 years in New Orleans also with a certificate of authenticity. Other items representing the historic collection of Holy Trinity will also be available: prayer bracelets, golf shirts with Byzantine logo, Holy Trinity icon notecards with images of Holy Trinity icons saved through the years, Orthodox books, and Commemorative Consecration ornaments. All proceeds from this booth go directly to supporting the conservation of Holy Trinity relics and artifacts.
