Original by Karl Schutz – Waterwheel Square.
Show on Map
In 1966, the Chemainus-Crofton and District Chamber of Commerce adopted the waterwheel as its emblem. A full size working replica of the original Chemainus waterwheel, made of red cedar, came to life in a community project in 1967. MacMillan Bloedel contributed most of the material, Beggs Brothers Ltd., the cement and Karl Schutz created the wheel itself. Many other individuals also contributed their time and labour. It was dedicated by H.R. MacMillan on June 3, 1967. The waterwheel currently in use is a replica of the foregoing.

Lyman Whitaker, an American from Utah, has been a working sculptor for over 50 years. For the last 30 years he has focused on creating wind sculptures which are handmade kinetic art that responds to the changing currents of the wind.

Whitaker’s work is described as “intriguing when caught in one’s peripheral vision for a second, but not a diversion; up close, the experience is mesmerizing and interactive”.
