Sculpture Court Skate Park Murals

Sculpture Court Skate Park Murals

Call to Emerging Artists

The City of Mississauga invites emerging artists to submit expressions of interest to paint a series of temporary public art murals at Sculpture Court skate park at Mississauga Civic Centre. Working under the guidance of a professional mentor artist, emerging artists will work together to create a new vision for Sculpture Court, gaining valuable professional experience and a paid mentorship opportunity in the process.

This temporary public art competition is open to emerging artists residing in Mississauga. The City of Mississauga defines an emerging artist as someone in the early years of their professional career, who may have had previous professional exhibitions, commissions, presentations, and/or installations.

Selected emerging artists will receive a $250.00 honorarium to attend a workshop with an established mural artist and to re-surface, design, and paint one of nine mural panels. Murals will be unveiled on May 7, 2019.
