It took New Orleans, to transform the centuries old celebration of Mardi Gras into "America's Greatest Party".
Andrea Mistretta has been referred to by many as "New Orleans Mardi Gras Poster Queen". Her Mardi Gras art has been the subject of several feature articles in domestic and international art magazines and books.
Andrea's New Orleans Mardi Gras poster collection started back in the early 1980's . Each year when Mardi Gras comes around she creates a new poster commemorating that year. Her work becomes more popular and collected with each new creation.
