Raise a toast to Frank | Photo of the day 1.4

A cardboard cutout of Frank Buxton stands at the door of the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art on Thursday.

Buxton, an iconic member of the island’s cultural scene, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 2 at the age of 87. His wife, Cynthia Lovelace Sears, was a founder of the Bainbridge museum.

The cardboard cutout holds a message for museum-goers: The museum’s bistro is offering a free drink to anyone who raises a glass in Frank Buxton’s honor, a “small tribute to a great man.”
