The River is the Road: Paintings by George Rodrigue. Coinciding with the 10th anniversary of Rodrigue’s death, this exhibition will trace 40 years of the river in Rodrigue’s paintings, exploring the unique ways he used the river as a reference to his Cajun heritage, and ultimately as a metaphor for the journey of life.
The exhibition includes 45 original works from landscapes and the Cajun series to the Blue Dog, including paintings, pastels, and sculptures from the private collection of Wendy Rodrigue, and the George Godfrey Rodrigue, Jr. Family Trust, and selected works borrowed from public and private collections.
The waterways of Louisiana were the early highways of its inhabitants. We had no roads; we just had the water. They were the natural fairways for commerce, development, and everything necessary for settlers to expand. — G.R.
