Colourful wolf sculpture completed for city trail

A life-sized wolf sculpture has been decorated by talented young artists from Highfields ready to form part of Wolverhampton’s biggest public art event.

The 5ft sculpture has been transformed into a colourful piece of art as part of the Wolves in Wolves project, which will see 30 of the sculptures placed around the city at points of interest, allowing people to explore its best attractions.

Students were selected by members of staff from the Art department to decorate the school’s wolf before it hits the streets to form part of the city-wide sculpture trail. 

They have worked on the design with representatives from WV Active, which has sponsored the sculpture. It includes blue swirls to represent the city’s swimming pools and silhouettes to showcase the many activities on offer at its leisure centres, as well as the colours of the Highfields logo.

Wolves in Wolves is being organised by The Outside Centre and Enjoy Wolverhampton, with support from Wolverhampton City Council. The trail will run from July to September before the wolf sculptures are auctioned off for charity
