Title: Blue Dogs
Authors: Rodrigue, George
Keywords: Public art
Issue Date: 2015
Publisher: Memphis, Tenn. : Art Department, Rhodes College
Abstract: For more than five years, the office building at Union and Cleveland provided some needed color to the Medical District with its giant hanging murals. In 2015, a changing of the guard occurred and up went eight panels by Louisiana artist George Rodrigue. The "blue dog," an iconic, wide-eyed character that has graced national exhibitions, ads and New Orleans cultural posters, got its origin in the bayou's landscape. On the east side of the building is Rodrigue's first blue dog painting, "Loup Garou," which is an homage to the Cajun mythological creature and Rodrigue's own mixed-breed dog. The works progress chronologically around the north side.
