"Bark! A Tribute to Human's Best Friend" runs until March 1, 2014.
I am sad to report that George Rodrigue, Louisiana artist and painter of the iconic "Blue Dog," died on Saturday night from cancer.
His friend, NOLA reporter Doug MacCash, wrote a lovely tribute here. My deepest sympathies to his family, especially his wife, Wendy, who writes a soulful blog, recently published as a book, Musings of an Artist's Wife, that I have found endlessly inspiring.
