Koryn Rolstad created “Guiding Sails” in 2011 for the Lambert’s Point Community Center. Six post and sail structures depict the marine culture of the area.
Guiding Sails is a focal point for the community, a neighborhood identity that supports the safety goals of the Community Center. Set in the landscaped center of a parking lot and waiting area, the installation provides a seating area for young people and seniors waiting for transportation. Dynamic colored LED lighting creates a lively nighttime environment.
