George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts (GRFA) advocates the importance of the arts in the development of our youth. GRFA encourages the use of art within all curriculums and supports a variety of art educational programs.
In 2009 George Rodrigue formed GRFA as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. In addition to providing financial assistance in the arts and other areas, GRFA will plan, develop, and implement a series of unique educational art programs that are specially designed to enhance and expand art curriculums, despite continuing state and federal cutbacks.
George Rodrigue Foundation wants to reverse this trend. As a young boy George dreamed of being an artist, and as an adult he credited the support of his parents and teachers with helping him realize that dream.
"GRFA art contest has allowed my artwork to leave the classroom and be discovered by many people who appreciate art and the wonderful state of Louisiana. It's been a prestigious experience and honor to be awarded and recognized by the professional art community."
