How well do you know the Blue Dog? Drawn exclusively from the Rodrigue Archives and the artist’s private collection, “Rodrigue’s Blue Dog: Discovering Late Works on Canvas and Metal” is on display this summer at Biloxi’s Ohr-O’Keefe Museum.
Featuring 25 contemporary and rarely seen works created during the last decade of the artist’s life, the exhibition showcases Rodrigue’s alignment with surrealism, pop and abstract art through bold colors, abstract shapes, large scale and non-traditional materials.
The exhibition also includes the impressive “Loup Garou,” Rodrigue’s first painting without reference to the Louisiana landscape. Exhibition on display through Aug. 18.
