On Thursday, September 4th, the Estate of George Rodrigue will unveil a new posthumous print, Take Five, at a private reception at the Cook Hotel in Baton Rouge. The silkscreen was designed by George Rodrigue before his passing on December 14, 2013, and has been printed posthumously in a limited numbered edition of 950.

Starting today, the print will be available for purchase at www.GeorgeRodrigue.com and in Rodrigue Studio locations in New Orleans, Lafayette, and Carmel, California.
