Nearly 5,000 people have visited “Rodrigue: Houston” since its April 25th opening!
Grateful to the Houston community for their enthusiasm and interest, the Rodrigue family is extending the exhibition (originally closing July 5th) an additional two weeks to July 19th.
This unique retrospective exhibition features 75 original works of art spanning 45 years, including George Rodrigue’s dark Louisiana Landscapes, Cajun genre scenes, and iconic “Blue Dog” paintings.
“Dad’s connection to Houston runs deep, with close friends, stories, artwork, and philanthropy since the 1970s,” explains Jacques Rodrigue, Executive Director of the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts.
“My family is touched that the Houston community has enjoyed this exhibition; and we’re pleased to extend this special showing of classic and rarely seen George Rodrigue paintings.”
During “Rodrigue: Houston” the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts, a non-profit organization established by the artist in 2009, has donated $25,000 worth of art supplies to Houston Independent Schools District classrooms and hosted free exhibit tours for nearly 1,000 Houston area students.
