The Big Wheel
  • A request by the City of Weyburn for a mural depicting Weyburn's history from past to present resulted in what is now known and treasured as The Big Wheel. It is a graphical mosaic of Weyburn's history that includes 10 panels, each panel providing history for various periods in time, beginning with before 1850 to the present. The Wheel is a creation of artist Joan Linley, with assistance provided by Lorna Pennock and Al Wiebe. The wheel itself was constructed of mahogany, weighing in at over a ton and measuring 13 feet in diameter, and is an authentic scaled model of a wagon wheel typical of a historical horse drawn wagon. The panels were constructed with Italian glass tile and are a visual feast of 90 different colors. This stunning work of art is located inside Weyburn's Public Library.
