Coming About


This fountain sculpture is called Coming About and was made by husband-and-wife team Jeffrey Read and Jennifer Madden.  It's located in the center of downtown Tiburon, California.

For us non-sailors, “coming about" is a sailing maneuver by which a sailing craft, whose next destination is into the wind, turns its bow toward and through the wind so that the direction from which the wind blows changes from one side of the boat to the other, allowing progress in the desired direction.
