Prior to his 2013 death, Rodrigue designed what he termed “Take Five,” a work that features his iconic Blue Dog surrounded by lush vegetation and symbols of the “rich musical heritage of the LSU School of Music.”

The Times reports ( ) his estate has used the silkscreen to create 950 numbered prints that were unveiled Thursday at a private reception in LSU’s Cook Hotel.
