Temporary Public Art: Banner Program

Request for Proposals

The City of Mississauga invites professional artists and illustrators with a connection to Mississauga to submit proposals to create original banner artwork. Artists are asked to propose artwork that forms a series of neighbourhood portraits that celebrate the unique culture and characteristics of Mississauga's neighbourhoods, while unifying the city in an impactful and creative movement to foster local pride and positivity.

Banner artwork will be on display in Cooksville, Clarkson Village, Malton, Port Credit, Streetsville, and the Downtown Core.

This public art project is a collaborative initiative between Public Art, Tourism Mississauga, and our local BIAs in support of Mississauga Made, an online initiative inspired to support and promote local Mississauga products, businesses, and artists within our community.

The commissioned artist(s) will receive $7,000.00 +HST. Fabrication and installation costs are covered by the City and local BIAs and are not included in this fee.
