THE BLUE DOG WILL LIVE ON

George Rodrigue 

A wonderful artist and fine man just left the bonds of this earthly plane.  His art foundation helped thousands of Louisiana children have art supplies for art education programs. He also donated to children's hospitals in gifts of his work.  It is with great sadness we say goodbye to George Rodrigue. If you do not have a chosen charity please consider the George Rodrigue Art Education Foundation.  Our thoughts go our to his family during this sad time and holiday season.  May the seeds he sowed grow many an artist and creative thinkers in the schools of Louisiana.

“I realize more today than ever, that Europe had to experience the Dark Ages in order to have the Renaissance. Art reinvents itself by people who go though things that they may not understand at the time. There’s always hope that new generations will discover new things that eventually propel society forward.”

“For lack of a better word, I feel now a renaissance in the way I look at things and in the way the Blue Dog looks at me.”
