2017 POSTER AND ARTWORK DESIGNED BY ARTIST JOHN SAYLES OF DES MOINES.

Since the debut of Jazz in July in 1982 and throughout the evolution of the community concert series, artists have channeled their creative powers to develop artwork that has been used to promote the event. Every year, the reveal of Jazz in July’s iconic artwork is eagerly anticipated especially by those who collect t-shirts and posters based on the original design. Enjoy this gallery of all of the Jazz in July posters.
