Winner of Something New People’s Choice Award is ‘Daphne’

The Public Art Committee recently announced the winner of the 2019 Something New People’s Choice Award is “Daphne.”

Community members were invited to weigh in and vote for their favorite piece in Something New, and the majority chose this work, crafted by Karsten Boysen.

Something New is a rotating art exhibition which debuted in downtown Winslow in 2018. The project brings a collection of sculptures to outdoor sites around Winslow for a yearlong showing. New pieces are selected and rotated into these permanent locations annually, thus bringing “something new” to Bainbridge year after year.

The other 2019 Something New sculpture was “Stargazer” by Timm Duffy, located along Winslow Way near its intersection with Ericksen Avenue.

“Daphne” can be found in the harborside plaza at the southern end of Madison Avenue.

Both pieces were installed in July 2019 and will be on display through summer.

On May 1, Boysen will be presented with a $1,000 check and a letter from the city of Bainbridge Island at a ceremony in the harborside plaza.

The Public Art Committee is a program of Arts & Humanities Bainbridge, a group of citizen volunteers who are dedicated to enhancing public space through access to public art. Learn more at
