Today our focus is on sharing the Art of George Rodrigue with a broader, far-reaching audience, through lectures and presentations, as well as museum and gallery exhibitions.

Since the inception of the Life & Legacy Tour in 2017, Wendy Rodrigue has visited 63 schools, given numerous lectures at museums, universities and community groups, sharing personal stories and original paintings from her late husband’s private collection.




Their hands were raised the whole time as she spoke, eyes twinkling, as Wendy started with the tale of George’s origins in Louisiana, paving the way for his masterpieces. –
