The George Rodrigue Foundation of the
Arts (GRFA) has announced that it has designated seven estate-stamped Blue Dog prints
to be sold to the public for the purpose of fundraising for other nonprofits. The late artist,
for whom the foundation was named, was a Louisiana native who gained fame for
his Blue Dog series, and, since 2009, this GRFA program has helped to raise
millions of dollars.
Now, more than ever, the organization
hopes to make a difference as nonprofits struggle to make ends meet due to the
effects of the coronavirus.
For a short time, these seven prints are
available for the public to purchase, for $1,000 plus tax, along with shipping and handling.
In support of other nonprofits, the buyer then has the opportunity to donate 50
percent of their purchase to the charity of their choice.
This is the perfect opportunity for those
wishing to support nonprofits through this difficult time, but the offer is
limited, and once normal operations resume, prints will again be only available
for purchase by 501(c)3 organizations.
