Arts Education Supporters Come Together for Unveiling of New Blue Dog Print

Last week, the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts and the Louisiana State University School of Music came together at The Cook Hotel in Baton Rouge for the unveiling of "Take Five," a posthumous print by George Rodrigue.

The event was generously underwritten by Deborah Dunlevy Todd and featured a performance on the Rodrigue Steinway Piano by Harold Mims, a student in the LSU School of Music.

The Blue Dog print, which the Estate of George Rodrigue issued in an edition of 950, is available at the price of $500 and all proceeds will be split between GRFA and LSU School of Music. With this edition selling quickly, both organizations dedicated to arts education are benefitting greatly. Thank you to everyone who has already purchased one of these silkscreen prints!

About Rodrigue Estate Editions

The Estate of George Rodrigue created a proprietary ink stamp on editions released by the Estate. The one-of-a-kind formula includes several security measures that guarantee the authenticity of Rodrigue Estate editions. The stamp measure approximately 1.5 x 3 inches and is screened directly onto prints issued by the Rodrigue Estate. This signature reacts uniquely to differing wavelengths of light.
