Curated by Dana Holland-Beickert, the collection unveiled in this exhibition features an extraordinary assortment of paintings, sculptures, works on metal, and neon pieces, representing the true essence of George Rodrigue’s artistic journey. Rodrigue crafted these artworks without any external influence, whether agents, galleries, or collectors. Many of these pieces remained exclusively within the personal collection of George and Wendy Rodrigue, adorning their homes in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Carmel, California.

This installation of 50 artworks from George and Wendy’s private collection continues at
MONA Portsmouth through Jan. 2, 2024. Sponsored by Avery Insurance.

In 2024, George Rodrigue: Painting for Myself moves to the
Bayou Teche Museum in Rodrigue’s hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. Join Wendy for exhibition tours mid-March, including a gala celebration on George’s 80th birthday, March 13th.
