This year, “Something New IV” will place sculptures in five outdoor locations in downtown Winslow: the intersection of Winslow Way and Ericksen Avenue, the south end of Madison Avenue in Doc’s Plaza, the entrance to Bainbridge Island City Hall and new this year, two additional locations in Waterfront Park.
