Maps of Mississauga

Welcome to Maps of Mississauga, a showcase of work by Mississauga's artists and illustrators who created artistic interpretations of their neighbourhoods, curated by Mississauga's Public Art Program.

In the midst of this global pandemic, where many Mississauga residents are physically distanced from their neighbours, friends, and communities, artists from across the city reflected on COVID-19--including the relationship they have with the city, their public spaces, and their neighbourhoods.

A place becomes special through a community's memories and stories. While Mississauga residents and artists are not currently able to congregate in public spaces, you can still experience the spirit and stories of Mississauga in the artwork presented.
