Ethel Claiborne Dameron Lecture Series: Wendy Rodrigue

October 29

For its 2023 presentation of the Ethel Claiborne Dameron Lecture series, the West Baton Rouge Historical Association welcomes Wendy Rodrigue, surviving wife of the late Louisiana artist George Rodrigue, famous for his “Blue Dogs” and other paintings capturing the culture and lore of the Bayou State. Wendy’s talk is titled George Rodrigue: Reflections of Love, and will walk attendees through George’s process and technique of transferring his emotions onto canvas, particularly how he did so following his cancer diagnosis. The lecture will accompany the WBRM’s current exhibition The River is the Road: Paintings by George Rodrigue, and Wendy will bring in new paintings from her personal collection for the presentation. 2 pm. Free. westbatonrougemuseum.org.
