Located in a triangular plaza at the intersection of Bridgeway, Caledonia and Napa Streets, the sail-shaped Bolinar commemorates Sausalito’s 1993 Centennial and celebrates the City’s Portuguese heritage. The word "bolinar" is Portuguese for "close to the wind." The sculpture was created by local artist John Libberton. Original tiles were donated by Heath Ceramics, under the direction of renowned ceramist Edith Heath. Plants for the plaza's 1993 succulent garden were donated by the late Dr. Herman Schwartz, the famed plant collector and succulent specialist who made his home in Marin County.
