City-Owned Art Collection: Arts in Isolation

City-Owned Art Collection: Arts in Isolation

Call to Mississauga Artists

The City of Mississauga Public Art Program seeks to commission new two-dimensional works by Mississauga-based visual artists, to create a new collection of historical markers for this moment in time.

Selected artists will create artwork in a medium of their choosing, themed around their reflection of the COVID-19 pandemic. The artwork will be added to the City's permanent Corporate Art Collection, for future display in public facilities across the city.

We hope that in creating these works, we create a collection that enriches our public spaces, brings Mississauga residents together, and supports local artists through this crisis.

This project is open to professional or recognized visual artists residing in Mississauga, who self-identify as facing financial, emotional, or social challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic and who face barriers adapting their work to a digital medium. Commissioned artists will receive an honorarium of $1000.

Here's what's hot

The Lakeview Farmers' Market runs from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, and operates Sundays from May 30th to October 10th. The Market features local, sustainable, organic, and artisanal products, which provide an important source of income for local farmers, growers, producers, and artisans.

Whether we realize it or not, hair affects us all; it is considered one of the most visible communicators of status, privilege, and culture, both today and throughout human history.

This summer, visitors can shop and support local at the Love Local Art Shop - a charming shipping container turned pop-up shop at Celebration Square. Pop in and browse a new selection of unique and original artwork by the City of Mississauga's Resident Artists every weekend!

Eat fresh and shop local this summer at Celebration Square. This favourite central market offers a broad variety of items including homemade preserves and honey, baked goods, locally produced wine and Ontario-grown fruits and vegetables.
