2016 Poster Artist:
Victoria Topham

"I am honored to be chosen as the poster artist for Games of Acadiana this year. Games of Acadiana is a vital part of Lafayette and I am thankful that I have been given the chance to show Acadiana what Games of Acadiana means to me. I've attended Games since I was a child. As a student of Ascension Episcopal School, the very school Miles Perret attended, support for MPCS was central to our dedication to service. The poster art contains four vines, representing "Play Through the Seasons," Each vine is vibrant and filled with fun elements that represent the fun games available. The vines originate from Miles, since without MPCS, Games of Acadiana would not exist. The sun shines behind Mile's heads and hands, showing the hope and light the MPCS brings to families fighting, surviving and living with cancer."

2015 Poster Artist:
Dailey Thibeaux

"I am extremely humbled to have been chosen as the GOA artist this year - especially as it marks the 15th year of Games of Acadiana. I could not think of a better cause to use my talent to help. I began by thinking about what GOA means to me. To me, Games is a fun, playful event that spreads the message of families living with, fighting, and surviving cancer. The bright colors represent the playfulness of the event. The different sports on the cake show the wide range of activities the event offers. I chose to put Miles looking between the candles like any kid would be, eagerly waiting to blow out the candles. The 15 represents the 15 years of the GOA, but it also conveys the year 2015. The Milesy icon is depicted under the cake showing how the organization is there through every family's journey - lifting them up and aiding them through such a difficult time. I am extremely proud of this poster, and I could not be more honored to have been asked to create this piece of art." - Dailey Thibeaux


2014 Poster Artist:
Theon Guillory

"Creating a concept for this painting was a big challenge and required thought and prayers. Normally, I would concentrate on tones, depth, and shadow, but the concept was more important than beauty for this piece. A childhood game came to mind, and I knew it was God’s plan—a medical-based game would perfectly represent this playful event. I am thankful to God for talent and blessings; family, friends, and coworkers for support; and MPCS for the opportunity. I am honored to be the 2014 GOA poster artist, and I can’t wait to see the piece reprinted for event use.”

2013 Poster Artist:
Christa Billeaud

"I am truly honored to partner with Miles Perret Cancer Services in the creation of this painting to promote the 2013 Games of Acadiana. It is an amazing opportunity to play a small part in actualizing the mission of this organization that is a blessing to our community. I have lost both parents to cancer, so I am inspired by MPCS and the people that survive and live with cancer every day. As a community, we can make a difference! Collect your friends, and go play!"

2012 Poster Artist:
Bonnie Camos

"It was an honor to create this special piece for MPCS. I have walked with family and friends through cancer, and I understand the ripple effect that cancer creates. Pulling from these experiences, I chose to focus the piece on the positive things such as constant support from friends, continuous prayers fro strength and courage, and love that grew exponentially day-to-day."
