Call for Artists: Logan Boulet Arena “Ripple Effect”

EOI Submission deadline: August 7, 2023 at 4:30pm MT

The City of Lethbridge Public Art Program is seeking an artist to design a multi-site artwork to be used as a vinyl wrap on windows above the entrance of the Logan Boulet Arena on 9th Ave N and 13th Street South, and on the Zamboni used for ice maintenance at that location. The windows stretch across the upper façade and allow for light into offices and changing rooms on the second floor of the building. The selected artist will be commissioned to provide designs for the vinyl wraps.

Site

Renamed in 2019, the Logan Boulet Arena provides dedicated space to local hockey, ringette, and lacrosse groups and is located next to Adam’s Park in North Lethbridge. Along the second floor of the building, facing north, there is a row of windows that provide light to some internal spaces, including team change rooms. The outdoor vinyl will be perforated to allow for light to still reach these spaces. The Zamboni, which is housed inside the rink, will be wrapped in opaque vinyl.

Eligibility 

The competition is open to artists in Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. All levels of practice will be considered.
