Voting open for ‘Something New’ award

Bainbridge Island’s Public Art Committee has opened the polls for the 2018 Something New People’s Choice Award. Community members are invited to weigh in with their vote for their favorite piece in the current Something New show, a rotating art exhibition which debuted in downtown Winslow in July.

The project brings a collection of sculptures to outdoor sites around Winslow for a yearlong exhibition. New pieces are selected and rotated into these permanent locations annually, bringing “something new” to Bainbridge year after year.

The recipient of the People’s Choice Award will be announced early next year. In addition to the prestige of being voted “The People’s Choice,” the award includes a $1,000 prize.

The three Something New sculptures vying for this year’s People’s Choice Award are “Hand in Hand” by Will Robinson, “Three Color Spires” by Gerry Newcomb, and “Iris Flare” by Lin McJunkin and Milo White.

The pieces are located in Waterfront Park, in the plaza at the southern end of Madison Avenue, and along Winslow Way near its intersection with Ericksen Avenue, respectively.

Each piece will be on display until summer of 2019.

Voting is open through Dec. 31. Ballots may be cast online or in person. Vote online by visiting or

Paper ballots can be found and submitted at the office of Arts & Humanities Bainbridge in the Marge Williams Center (221 Winslow Way West, Suite 201) or at Bainbridge Island City Hall.
