Sculpture duo wins BI’s Something New title again
“Although the Bainbridge Island Public Art Committee’s Something New program is just in its third year, one artist duo has already won the competition twice.
The team of metal sculptor Milo White and glass artist Lin McJunkin recently won the Something New competition with their creation of Fossil II, which was displayed on Winslow Way near Town & Country Market. They also won the inaugural competition in 2018 for their Iris Flare sculpture.
The artifact has since been removed and was sold to a private party after a ceremony last week for the competition winners. The art team was recognized by members of Arts & Humanities Bainbridge and received a $1,000 check and a letter of accolade from the city of Bainbridge Island
