He graced the Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog and was a fund-raising symbol for the post-Katrina New Orleans saints.

Now, Blue Dog is coming to Memphis.

From July 29 to October 14, the Dixon Gallery will exhibit "Blue Dog: The Art of George Rodrigue."

The Dixon's website states that Rodrigue's internationally-recognized Blue Dog "came unexpectedly from an illustration he did for the folk tale of loup-garous, the Cajun werewolf." When the artist created Blue Dog, he modeled it after his own recently deceased dog, Tiffany.

The exhibition will span Rodrigue's 40-year career and will include many never-before-seen works.
