Official 77th Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival poster by Jena Broussard Richardson! Posters are available at Sweet Interiors and Sir Speedy for $45.










Artist statement: “Saccharum officinarum” is a watercolor and pen study of the physical form and external structure of sugar cane. The artist wanted to create a botanical drawing that was aesthetically pleasing as well as educational. It features detail drawings of the plant cane growth cycle, flower and seeds, and the range of colors and textures found in the mature stalks and leaves.

New Iberia native Jena Broussard-Richardson is an artist and art teacher. She has a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and an Art Education certification from ULL. For the last eight years she has been an art teacher at NISH; she teaches metal working, drawing, painting, and a little bit of all media. She is the school’s decorator for special events such as Homecoming and Graduation. Jena opened Peace, Love, and Paintbrushes, an after-school art studio for elementary students, in 2013.

Jena was raised in rural New Iberia and grew up visiting grandparents on Avery Island and on her family’s sugar cane farm. She finds her inspiration for art in the beauty of nature and in changes of the seasons and mixes history and science into her pieces. Jena often creates art with materials and photos her husband brings home from his time hunting, fishing, and farming. Her work is always on display at the bi-annual New Iberia Art Walk.
