Here's what's hot

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.

These snow boots were made for walking! Safely explore outdoor art and self-guided activities this winter as part of Walks of Art, presented by TD Canada. Explore animated sites in Downtown Mississauga and Bradley Museum with self-guided walking tours, a scavenger hunt and fun games.

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.
