Public Art Mural: Mavis Work Yard

Public Art Mural: Mavis Work Yard

Expression of Interest

The City of Mississauga Public Art Program invites professional artists, muralists, and artist-led teams to submit expressions of interest to create a public art mural on the exterior of the Mavis Work Yard building (3185 Mavis Road, Mississauga, ON).

This project is a unique and exciting collaboration between the Public Art Program and the Transportation and Works Department (T&W). The goals of the project are to beautify the exterior of the Work Yard building and provide an opportunity for an artist to work collaboratively with Work Yard staff to create an artwork that educates and inspires the public to learn more about the work that T&W does.

The mural will be painted directly onto the exterior wall surrounding the Mavis Work Yard entrance. The commissioned artist(s) will be expected to complete the project by September 2021.

Total budget for this project is $20,000 + HST.
