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

Presented by The Chamber Music Society of Mississauga in the Small Arms Inspection Building. On Wednesday, November 10, beginning at noon, the 20-minute show performed every hour on the hour with the last performance at 7 pm.

On the heels of our successful Indigenous Gathering and Celebration event, we are excited to invite you to our upcoming Indigenous Art Exhibit! All are welcome with the exhibit showcasing art from indigenous artists locally and from across Ontario.

The City of Mississauga seeks to commission a professional Indigenous public art curator to assist with the development of a waterfront Indigenous Art Trail. In this role, the curator will develop a community-informed public art plan and lead the commissioning process for three public art projects by Indigenous artists.

Join the Museums of Mississauga in partnership with the Mississauga Library for an interactive conversation. In this presentation, we explore a few of the stories, photographs and artifacts belonging to Mississauga residents who participated in both World Wars, both on the front lines and at home.
