ARLINGTON — The Arlington Arts Council is pleased to announce that Heather Logan will be honored as its Art Advocate of the Year at the AAC’s 11th annual “Fall Into Art” auction on Saturday, Oct. 19.
An assistant administrator at Cascade Valley Hospital, Logan was instrumental in gathering an impressive body of art for Arlington’s hospital after its remodel was complete several years ago, and she also worked with Skagit Valley Hospital to provide art at the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance in Smokey Point.
The art collections at both hospitals include a great variety of styles and media, by local and regional artists, and provide an excellent distraction for patients and visitors at the hospitals.
Logan also coordinates a rotating exhibit on a quarterly basis at Cascade Valley Hospital, that often features art by children from local schools, Arlington Arts Council members and other regional artists.
Logan’s other roles have included serving on the board for the north region of Housing Hope, as past president of the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce, and as a board member for Arlington Dollars for Scholars.
Logan represents the hospital on the not-for-profit Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation, for which she is coordinating the foundation’s first “Festival of Trees” from Nov. 1-2, and she also coordinates hospital staff to present Arlington’s Grand Parade during the Fourth of July.
Logan even volunteers to interview prospective students for the University of Chicago.
Arlington Arts Council President Sarah Arney credited Heather Logan and her husband Sid with helping the AAC to complete the Sound Garden this year, with a substantial cash donation.
“We are pleased to be able to honor Heather for her contributions toward making Arlington an artistic community,” Arney said. “The hospital’s art is yet another impressive collection of art for our community, that complements the public art of downtown Arlington.”
