George Rodrigue to Unveil Painting "We Will Rise Again"
Louisiana Artist's Goal is to Raise $5,000,000 for the Southeast Louisiana Chapter of the American Red Cross to Benefit the Hurricane Katrina Recovery

(LAFAYETTE, LA) - George Rodrigue will unveil his painting "We Will Rise Again," his response to the recent tragedy in Southeast Louisiana. Sales of prints from the painting will benefit the Southeast Louisiana Chapter of the American Red Cross.

"We Will Rise Again" shows the American Flag covered with water. The Blue Dog is partially submerged, and its eyes, normally yellow, are red from a broken heart. Like a ship's S.O.S., the Red Cross on the dog's chest calls out for help. "Katrina hit me personally at ground zero and my immediate thought was for the safety of all the people in this region" says Rodrigue. New Orleans has been the home of Rodrigue Gallery and Studio for 16 years and it is where the Blue Dog was born.

George and Wendy Rodrigue join thousands of New Orleans residents in their pledge to go HOME, to re-build the city, and to pay tribute to those who lost their lives with a commitment to care for the citizens, embrace the culture, and make the good times roll... again.
