The Raleigh Arts Commission showed off the first of about 100 wolves that will be part of its exhibit Tuesday night.

The public was invited to enter a Create-A-Wolf contest. The

winning entries

will be created and displayed across the city.

The entire pack of wolves will be unveiled September 7. The exhibit runs through January, when the wolves will be auctioned.
