BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) - The local artist with world wide fame, George Rodrigue, is premiering a collection of his work in Baton Rouge on the night of July 22nd.
Although best known for his “Blue Dog” paintings, this exhibit features some of his less known works.

The New Iberia native titled the show "Blue Dogs and Cajuns on the River" because his early work represents the Cajun way of life.

The event will be attended by some of his favorite friends from the bayou, former governors Edwin Edwards and Kathleen Blanco are expected to attend.

Rodrigue says that this is exhibit speaks volumes about our state and culture.

The exhibit is featured at the LSU Museum of Art.

That's located in downtown Baton Rouge, and will stay on display through September 18th.
