BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA – Arts & Humanities Bainbridge announces the 2020 “Something New” Call for Local Public Art. “Something New” is a dynamic public art experience offering an opportunity for sculptors to exhibit their work in prominent locations on Bainbridge Island. This year, “Something New” will place sculptures in three outdoor locations in downtown Winslow: the intersection of Winslow Way and Ericksen Avenue, the south end of Madison Avenue in Doc’s Plaza and the entrance to Bainbridge Island City Hall.
Selected works will remain on display for nine months, after which time they will be removed to make room for the next collection, offering Bainbridge Islanders and visitors “Something New” every year.
In addition to the three pieces to be temporarily exhibited as part of “Something New,” Bainbridge Island’s Public Art Collection consists of over 24 works, the majority of which are also located in downtown Winslow. The city’s Public Art Program is supported by volunteer members of the Public Art Committee (PAC), a sub-committee of Arts & Humanities Bainbridge. For more information, please visit bainbridgewa.gov/956/Public-Art-Program.
The artists selected for “Something New” will receive a $1,000 honorarium with the opportunity to be recognized for a $1,000 People’s Choice Award. The call is open to all Washington state artists. For more details, visit currentsonline.org/public-art.
