"Remembering Francisco Bouligny" 

Special Thanks

2016 Artist 

Ms. Susan Nugent Clark 

This year's poster is very special as it was designed by local artist Susan Nugent Clark who has been an artist most of her adult life and has a degree from USL in Art Education. She has taught art in both the public and private schools in the area for the last 40 years. Her paintings have won many honors including a Sugarcane Festival Poster and a commemorative poster for the Shell Oil in Houston. Susan is very grateful to have been asked to create the artwork for this year's Spanish Festival since her ancestry includes the Segura family from Malaga, Spain. Susan has done a tremendous amount of research on this year's theme, "Remembering Francisco Bouligny" and has done an exceptional job of portraying the arrival of the 16 Spanish families led by Bouligny, first to Charenton near the Chitimacha Nation and then down the Bayou Teche to present day New Iberia to establish the colony of "Nueva Iberia" in April 1779.
