Lake Charles Exhibit Opens and a Sidewalk Chalk Event

On Friday, January 21st, the Lake Charles' Imperial Calcasieu Museum launched their exhibit of "Blue Dogs and Cajuns"

The exhibit is on view through March 4th and it features paintings from the collection of the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) , the Sage of the Acadians from the Gauthier Family collection, and more.

In honor of the opening, George Rodrigue held a book signing and mingled with those in attendance.

Then, on Saturday, January 22nd, we participated in a sidewalk chalk even with local aspiring student artist's from the Lake Charles area. Each child got to draw their own Blue Dog while they watched George Rodrigue create his own masterpiece out of chalk.

Thank you to everyone who attended both events. The NOMA collection is on a state-wide tour all this year. For more information about tour dates visit here.
