New Foundation Offices!

Announcing the opening of our NEW Foundation Offices in New Orleans, LA at 747 Magazine Street! We are officially in our new space and operating from our new location in the heart of the New Orleans Arts Districts (NOAD).

With over 3,000 sq. ft. we will be able to host student field trips, summer camps, teacher workforce development workshops, fundraisers, and many other events! Our space features some of George Rodrigue's most famous original paintings and we will have a Ribbon Cutting/Grand Opening Ceremony in July.

Until then, please enjoy some preview photos of our space.

Eagle Scout Print Benefits Boy Scouts and GRFA

In honor of George Rodrigue receiving the "Distinguished Eagle Scout" award from the Boy Scouts of America, he created this limited edition silkscreen print called "Eagle Scout"

On May 12, 2011, George received his award at a special dinner. Pictured are Honorary Chairman of the event Billy Nungesseer with Wendy Rodrigue and George's original Scout Master, Donald LaBauve, with his son and fellow scout, Ronald.
