On September 19, 2014 at 5 p.m., UWG dedicated a bronze wolf statue at the heart of the new Wolves Plaza.
Created by art department chair Kevin Shunn and lecturer Ryan Lamfers, The Wolf is over 7-feet tall, 9-feet wide and 3,500 pounds and was commissioned by Bob and Tish Stone and the Stone family. This video, developed by the creative services video crew in University Communications and Marketing, shows clips of the early stages of the wolf’s building process.
The statue was created by hand with clay before undergoing a bronzing process. During the process, it was painted and playing cards were embedded into the clay.
Be sure to check out The Wolf the next time you are at the Athletic Complex for a game.
On Wednesday, October 1 at 12 p.m., Wolves fans and coaches will have a chance to mingle and talk UWG Athletics at American Pie Pizzeria on Maple Street. All fans are invited to this event.
During lunch, hear from the in-season coaches, including undefeated football coach Will Hall, volleyball coach Trina Braden and soccer coach Chris Davidovicz.
