A dynamic public art experience as well as an ongoing opportunity for sculptors to exhibit their work. The exhibit places sculptures in five outdoor locations in downtown Winslow on beautiful Bainbridge Island. The five locations include the pedestal in front of T & C on Winslow Way and Erickson, the pedestal at the south end of Madison Ave, S. (in the Doc’s plaza), the pedestal at the entry door of Bainbridge Island City Hall building, one is Waterfront Park, and one west of the Senior Center near Waterfront Park.
Selected works remain on display for 11 months after which they are removed to make room for the next collection, offering Bainbridge Islanders and visitors “something new” every year.
In addition to the five new pieces to be temporarily exhibited as part of the Something New exhibit, Bainbridge Island has a Public Art Collection consisting of 24 works, the majority of which are also located in downtown Winslow.
