Wolves, a unique part of Abingdon’s history, have invaded the streets of Abingdon.
Advance Abingdon, the town’s Main Street organization, has launched “Who’s Afraid of Virginia’s Wolves?” for 2012. Part public art campaign, part fundraiser, the project showcases thirty-eight wolf sculptures painted by local artists and displayed for public viewing through September.
The project was made possible through financial sponsorship of the sculptures by local businesses, individuals and The Town of Abingdon.
Local artists submitted design ideas or worked with sponsors to create these unique works of art. Brochures, which include a map of the wolf locations, are available at area businesses and the Abingdon Convention and Visitors Bureau. Thirty of the wolf sculptures will be auctioned at a fall gala to be held October 19, 2012, at the Heartwood artisan center in Abingdon. Proceeds will benefit Advance Abingdon, a Virginia Main Street organization dedicated to downtown revitalization.
The organization also has wolf t-shirts available for sale at the Abingdon CVB and Holston Mountain Artisans.
