George and Wendy Rodrigue
George and Wendy Rodrigue were married from 1997 until his death in 2013. For nearly 30 years, Wendy’s life’s work has been to share Rodrigue’s life and art in as broad and quality a manner as possible. Together, the couple partnered on the development of all aspects of Rodrigue’s career and life, including his galleries, museum exhibitions, a dozen books published both nationally and internationally on his art, and extensive education outreach.
In 2017 Wendy established the Life & Legacy Tour, continuing and expanding her late husband’s artistic and philanthropic vision while honoring one of America’s most important artists, George Rodrigue. Through Life & Legacy, Wendy has visited, personally, 86 schools and more than 35,000 students in 8 states, as well as countless adults and families through community and museum partnerships. As of December 2019, the Life & Legacy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit now entering its third strong year.
