Some of the early work produced in the first few months of the Wildcats Artist in Residency project will be on display this Wednesday at the Art Walk in Wakefield.

Some of the early work from the Wildcats Artist in Residence project will be on display this Wednesday evening.

Lifelong Wakefield fan Jason Wilsher-Mills has been working in local schools since September, helping to bring rugby to life through art using the medium of iPads to create the pieces.

These will be on display and Jason will be available to answer your questions on the residency so far and what is still to come plus there will also be members of the first team squad in attendance to check out the work.

It will be the first of a number of such exhibitions throughout the year in what is a groundbreaking project being carried out by the Wildcats Community Trust.

Running from 5-9pm in studio exhibition space 11, fans are invited to be part of the night.

The Wakefield-born artist will spend a year as the Wildcats Artist in Residence and will create fifteen commissioned pieces, thirteen of which will feature some of the clubs all time great players.

Within the year’s residency, Jason’s work with the local community will see a 60-metre mural stretching across the length of the Eric France Stand at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium telling the story of the club from its founding in 1873 to the present day.

The Art House is located on Drury Lane, WF1 2TE.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
