Sculptor Raymond Barger (1906-2001) donated this piece in honor of Brunswick’s centennial. The sculpture’s relevance to this train town is apparent. The bronze wheel sits atop railroad ties and track representing the rapid development of transportation,” without concurrent advance in human ability to wisely control its destination.” Wheel, a poem by Raymond Barger, advances this theme. The poem is part of the circular plaque in front of the sculpture.
