2010 Art Contest Winners

Congratulations! Over $35,000 in Scholarships Awarded!

The following students are the winners of the 2010 GRFA Art Contest. They were awarded over $35,000 in college scholarships and awards at the Awards Luncheon on March 17, 2010.

The 2010 art contest theme asked students to create a unique piece of art that reflected what they love best about Louisiana, much as George Rodrigue was inspired in the 1960s.

"I credit much of my success in my career to growing up in Louisiana," states George Rodrigue. "It was on the long drives home from art school in California that I realized how special and unique our state was in the world. Because I loved Louisiana, I chose to paint our landscape, people, and culture in order to preserve what I saw best about our area."
