        I am a great admirer of the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts, an organization doing great things for kids in Louisiana and other states. Today’s post from Americans for the Arts is by Jacques Rodrigue, the foundation’s executive director. See what a relatively small and dedicated local foundation can do to make the arts available for children.

Read…Reflect…Share!

“In 2009, my family formed the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts and as Executive Director I was tasked with trying to make sure the arts were kept in schools in a meaningful way. We believe that the arts are not just fluff, but that they are critical for student development in the 21st century.”
