Dan Tague on Pontiac - Times Picayune, Doug McCashDan Tague

Multi-media artist and activist Dan Tague (BA Studio Art '97, MFA Fine Arts '00)  added another achievement to an already impressive list of successes. Art Comes Alive, the national competition and exhibition of fine arts hosted annually for twenty years by Art Design Consultants, named Tague its 2014 Best Emerging Artist of the Year (Male) this June. Tague continues to explore the role of money in society through his art which incorporates folded American dollars, print making and photography to create thought-provoking messages about the role of money in our society. 

In August 2013, he was commissioned to create a new piece for the Sunday Review in The New York Times. Tague was then interviewed by the BBC for a feature on his work. Tague’s solo exhibition, The Almighty Dollar, appeared at the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans in October and his Crescent City Connection was included in an exhibit at the Dishman Art Museum at Lamar University. His work is included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art, The Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, collector Beth Rudin DeWoody, curator Dan Cameron, the Louisiana State Museum, collector Virginia Speed, Sanam Vaziri Quraishi Foundation and the West Collection of Contemporary Art. Dan Tague lives and works in New Orleans, LA.
