About the Artist

IMG_0410George Rodrigue (1944-2013) started his career by painting Louisiana bayous, live oak trees, Cajuns and the legends and folklore of the Acadiana area.  It was from one of these Cajun legends about a ghostlike werewolf dog that the Blue Dog series was born.

Congratulations to Lauren Gray of Lake Charles, a Senior at Sam Houston High School, chosen from more than 600 entries statewide as a finalist in the 2018 George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts Scholarship Art Contest!

Artist George Rodrigue based his Blue Dog Series on the French-Cajun legend of the "loup-garou." Click below to see Lauren's original work, "Steal Their Grace," based on this year's theme, "Monsters, Myths, and Legends."

In 2009 Rodrigue founded the GRFA Art Contest, which has awarded a combined $366,250 in scholarships to 135 students across Louisiana.
