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

To commemorate the centennial of the outbreak of the First World War in 2014, Heritage Mississauga documented soldiers from historic Mississauga who served and fell during the war.

During the First World War, Canadian soldier Lieutenant-Colonel George Stephen Cantlie plucked flowers from the fields of war-torn Europe, sending them home to his baby daughter Celia in Montreal.
