Today I walked the Wolves in Wolves trail with children from Loxdale Primary School as the art event draws to an end this Sunday.
Visitors to the City of Wolverhampton only have this weekend to walk the popular Wolves in Wolves trail.
The city’s largest ever public art event comes to an end on Sunday after almost three months, which has seen more than 50,000 trail maps snapped up from city venues, plus thousands downloaded digitally.
The 30 wolves sculptures have become much loved figures in the city centre and West Park, catching the eye thanks to their outstanding designs -; created by artists and school pupils.
It was great to support the Wolves in Wolves initiative, a fantastic public art event which has provided great excitement in the city over the last 3 months for people of all ages. I was particularly pleased to spend the morning with children from a school within my constituency (Loxdale) who have also designed one of the mini Wolves (pictured). Although Wolves in Wolves ends this Sunday, the project will leave a big mark on the city. Some of the statues will be left in the city and others will be auctioned off with the proceeds to be shared between ‘Outside Centre’ charity and the Mayor’s charities. I was honoured to be able to support this initiative.
City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, Councillor John Reynolds, said: “The wolves have really captured people’s imaginations and the whole project has been a howling success.
“Wolves in Wolves has showcased the city to visitors and the 30 wolves have helped put the city on the map as a cultural centre.
“It has also been a great way for people of all ages to get active and discover the city and what it has to offer.”
