Since founding the Life & Legacy Tour in 2017, Wendy Rodrigue has visited more than 70 schools and exposed, personally, Rodrigue’s life and art to more than 30,000 students and teachers throughout Louisiana, Oklahoma, Florida, and Mississippi. In addition, her lectures at museums, universities, and community groups, remain standing room only, as she shares personal stories and original paintings from her late husband’s private collection.
“Your stories of George and his art and life resonated with each and every person in attendance. You managed to share so much in such a short time, and I know so many of us would have loved to learn more. Our students need to hear those stories of risk and perseverance!” – EH at CHS
“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.” –wearesandsprings.com
“This lady is passionate, beautiful, intelligent and has a love for her late husband, George Rodrigue that is something to be admired! Her speeches to the CHS students were captivating! What a gift to CHS!” – JM at CHS
