Temporary Public Art: Bee Hotel

Temporary Public Art: Bee Hotel

Request for Proposals

The City of Mississauga invites Canadian professional artists or artist teams to submit proposals for an artist-designed Bee Hotel, to be located in Jack Darling Memorial Park. By providing a refuge for female bees to rest and lay eggs, bee hotels can be an effective approach to supporting the populations of native solitary bees.

This public art project will combine artistic excellence and creativity with environmental conservation. The Bee Hotel will promote the conservation of Mississauga's natural environment and inspire eco-friendly actions and values through compelling, unique, innovative public art.

The total budget for all artist fees, materials, and expenses related to this project is a maximum of $7,000 + HST Canadian Dollars.
