Family of Wolves

Family of Wolves has been delighting youth and adults alike for many years. It is a much loved feature in the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden. Specifically, it is sited along the Sculpture walk area. This colorful sculpture is made of found objects which can be identified as pieces of each wolf. Its placement is not only to delight young audiences, but to help them understand the importance of sculptures that use found objects and that make use of fabrication techniques.
