Family of Wolves, by Leonard Streckfus, has been delighting youth and adults alike for many years. It is a much-loved feature in the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden, specifically sited along the Sculpture Walk area. This colorful sculpture is made of found objects that can be identified as pieces of each wolf. Their placement delights young audiences and helps them understand the importance of sculptures that use found objects and make use of fabrication techniques.
