Rodrigue’s Artist Studio
In January 2017, the Bayou Teche Museum unveiled a recreation of George Rodrigue’s Carmel, CA studio space, complete with the artist’s easel and unfinished painting, and the plywood floor, splattered with paint. Artifacts and memorabilia from his youth, including his Boy Scout days in New Iberia and early student work paintings from his private collection are included in the installation.
