“Reflection”

“Reflection”

The winners of this year’s People’s Choice Award for the outdoor sculpture exhibition on Bainbridge Island called Something New III also won in 2018.

“Fossil II” by Lin McJunkin and Milo White received the most tallies from the almost 400 community members who voted, claiming the $1,000 first-place prize. They also created the first winner in the rotating art competition three years ago called “Iris Flare.”

A public award ceremony will take place at 3:30 p.m. June 17 in front of the Town & Country Market, where the vibrant glass and metal hexagon- shaped sculpture is located.

The project brings three new public art pieces to City Hall and BI’s downtown corridor each year. The other sculptures for Something New III are: “Reflection” by Abe Singer (at City Hall); and Fumi Amano’s, “Shape of Memory” (off Madison Ave. N. next to Doc’s Restaurant).

The Something New program provides an ongoing opportunity for sculptors from around the Pacific Northwest to exhibit their work. New pieces are selected and rotated into these permanent locations annually, bringing “something new” to BI each year.

The Public Art Committee, managed by Arts & Humanities Bainbridge and the city of Bainbridge Island, announced the winners recently.

As always, Homecoming at Bainbridge High School was filled with its normal pomp and circumstance. At left, a large student section turned out for the game against Bremerton. At right, cheerleaders wave their pompoms and BHS Spartan gridders take the field. While the start of the game was filled with positive emotions, it wasn’t that way at the end of the contest as the home team was blanked by visiting Bremerton. Nancy Treder Courtesy Photos
