Public art exhibition seeks submissions

The Public Art Committee is accepting submissions for its outdoor sculpture exhibition “Something New,” which recently brought three pieces to Bainbridge Island’s downtown corridor.

“Something New,” now in its second year, aims to provide a dynamic public art experience and an ongoing opportunity for sculptors from around the Pacific Northwest to exhibit their work.

The project brings a trio of sculptures to three outdoor sites around Winslow. The infrastructure at each site is permanent. However, the artwork on display is not. After each yearlong exhibition, new art is selected and rotated into place, bringing new works to Bainbridge Island.

The committee is seeking new sculpture art to refresh the collection this year. Sculptors from around the region are encouraged to apply. Specifically, submissions will be accepted from artists residing in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho.

Artists can view the Call for Art at and can apply online at

More information about “Something New” and the Public Art Committee is available at

The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 3, and the newly selected works will be installed in July.

Artists whose work is selected will receive a $1,000 honorarium. Additionally, while sculptures are on loan to the Public Art Program as part of the “Something New” exhibition, they are available for purchase and will be advertised as such.

One sculpture from the exhibition’s inaugural year (Will Robinson’s “Hand in Hand”) was recently acquired by the city of Bainbridge Island for inclusion in its permanent public art collection.
