Media Notice: “Interwoven Legacies”

March 28, 2024
Lethbridge, AB

In October 2019, the Adams Park Ice Centre in Lethbridge was renamed Logan Boulet Arena. On
April 7, 2018 Logan succumbed to injuries sustained in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. A selfless
act of signing an organ donor card allowed Logan to save six lives following his passing. This
resulted in the ‘Logan Boulet Effect’. Canadian Blood Services estimates 150,000 people registered
as organ donors in the weeks following Logan’s donation. Green Shirt Day began in 2019 and
continues this momentum. Every year on April 7, Green Shirt Day raises awareness about organ
donation and encourages conversations with our loved ones.

Following the renaming of Adams Ice Centre, the City of Lethbridge Public Art Program announced
a future project at the Logan Boulet Arena – one that would consider the impact of Logan’s story,
both within our community and across the nation. Local artist Karla Mather-Cocks was selected
from a strong field of applicants. Her work meditates on the “ripple effect” of Logan’s actions: the
idea that a selfless individual act like organ donation can ripple and magnify. Weaving analog
photographs from the Boulet family archive and the Galt Museum, Mather-Cocks has captured a
stunning visual representation of the deep connections fostered by ice sports in Lethbridge.
“Interwoven Legacies” has been installed on the front windows and Zamboni of the Logan Boulet

A media scrum to celebrate the public art installation will take place on April 4 at 10:30 a.m. at
Logan Boulet Arena. Invited guests Councilor Mark Campbell, Logan’s parents Toby and Bernie
Boulet, other members of the Boulet family, Karla Mather-Cocks and Belinda Crowson will speak
about the impact of the project. Later that evening, starting at 6 p.m., Casa will host a reception and
artist talk for Karla Mather-Cocks. This event is free and open to the public.
