Wheel in the Sky Mural
The “Wheel in the Sky” mural depicts a festive evening in 1920 Ireland. Located behind Carlos O’Bryans, this mural features a carnival with a Ferris wheel in the center. This Ferris wheel inspired the name of the mural. The pub in the mural called “An Ighean Dhamsa” is Irish Gaelic for “The Dancing Maiden”. A magician breathes fire as the city folks bustle throughout the street while they go about their daily activities. This festive scene represents the boisterous and jovial atmosphere of the restaurant. The scene adds life to the downtown back alley art gallery.
Alexx Moir-Porteous completed this mural in 2016 and has had an active role in the completion of many of the murals in Downtown Kamloops.
