We are now scheduling for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, and are SO EXCITED! To request information on a Life and Legacy visit with Wendy Rodrigue, please email email@example.com.
George Rodrigue (1944-2013) grew up in a school without art. As a result, he became passionate about the arts in education, and together he and his wife, Wendy, visited schools worldwide for years. During these events, he painted while she told his story. The children chimed in as he covered a large canvas with quick brushstrokes and bright, thick paint; and George and Wendy, in turn, experienced the magic of this creative phenomenon through their eyes.
As of 2021, through the Life & Legacy Foundation, Wendy has continued this momentum, sharing her late husband’s life and art during presentations to nearly 100 schools, some 500 classes, and more than 40,000 students, as often as possible within small groups of fifty or less. Together with her team, they’ve produced numerous exhibitions of George’s work, including ambitious museum installations, complete with gallery talks and docent trainings. Wendy has shared with dozens of community organizations such as Chambers of Commerce, Literary Clubs, Associations of Broadcasters, and Continuing Education. In every case, the presentation includes original, museum-quality Rodrigue paintings and is unique, unscripted, and fluid. After all, she has George’s entire life, as reflected in his stories, wisdom, and artwork, for inspiration. In short, she has only just begun!
June 8 Sponsored by the Oklahoma A+ Schools Institute “Not Your Average Conference” at the University of Central Oklahoma, Wendy Rodrigue presents a workshop featuring original paintings by her late husband, artist George Rodrigue. See photos and more!
