The Life & Legacy Tour continues this fall, not only in Louisiana, but in other states as well, taking me to colleges and universities, community groups, museums, and schools –sharing George’s story while using original paintings from his archives as a visual aid. I’ll post a schedule late summer. In the meantime, please join me for the following:
