Wolf sculpture taking shape ahead of city trail

A life-sized wolf sculpture that will form part of Wolverhampton’s biggest public art event is taking shape with swirls of colour.

The 5ft sculpture is being decorated 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 have been 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 are working with representatives from WV Active, which has sponsored the sculpture, on the design. It includes blue swirls to represent the city’s swimming pools and silhouettes to showcase the many activities on offer at its leisure centres.

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.
