Acclaimed artist Adam Hernandez stands in front of the giant wolf he created at Walnut Springs Middle School. 




A huge wolf has been spotted at Walnut Springs Middle School, but no one there is panicking.  Instead, they are admiring the fabulous new mural created on the athletic shed by renowned artist Adam Hernandez, who was born and raised in the Bronx to a family of musicians and performers.  As a child, the graffiti covering every surface of his city spoke to the self-taught artist, who has exhibited his work and painted murals in cities across the United States and in Cape Town, South Africa.   Hernandez has also been featured in multiple publications. He was recently named the Best Artist in Columbus by Columbus Alive.  Volunteer Linda Cowgill coordinated this special PTSA project.  Learn more at
