Bainbridge Islanders have a lot to look forward to in 2013. By mid-year the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art will be open, taking an already great art scene to new heights. The glass walls for the main galleries are installed and already changing the way we see Winslow, reflecting parts of the environment.

Matthew Coates of Coates Design, the architect for the new museum, told me that, “The building’s skin will also have louvers that adapt to changing light conditions and modulate our relationship to the building as well, like the building is alive.”
