Public Art

Since 2010, the City's Public Art Collection has grown to 20 permanent public art pieces and includes ongoing temporary art. Public art helps to develop a unique sense of place and create a beautiful, thought-provoking and energetic vibe that ultimately enhances the quality of life for residents and visitors.

Public art is art created by a professional artist or in collaboration with artists, through a formal process established in the City Acquired Art Policy. Public art is publicly accessible to all citizens and can be in any medium/media and take on any shape, form, or scale. The City's Public Art Master Plan provides the design and curatorial guidelines to plan, acquire, and maintain public art for residents and visitors.

Here's what's hot

The City of Mississauga Public Art Program invites professional artists or artist teams to create an original public artwork for the exterior metal structure of two pedestrian overpass bridges: Winston Churchill Bridge and Derry Road Bridge.

The New Youth Council wants to showcase you and your artwork. This is an opportunity to get professional recognition, have your art promoted to a wide audience and make connections to other young creative people in the city.
