Winter Tree Wraps 2017/2018

Call for Proposals

The City of Mississauga Public Art Program, along with the Parks & Forestry Division, invite professional Canadian artists or Canadian artist teams to submit proposals to create site-specific temporary public art for two (2) scenic locations in Mississauga. Artists are asked to submit a proposal for artwork that will wrap a total of 52 pyramidal oak trees for the 2017/2018 winter season.

The oak trees will first be wrapped by the City using burlap material in order to shield the trees from the harsh winter climate. The artist's work will be a stand-alone breathable element installed over top of the burlap material.

The artwork will be exhibited along the Hurontario Street corridor ("Site A"), and along the centre median at Burnhamthorpe Road West and Promontory Drive ("Site B"). The intent of the Winter Tree Wraps (the "Project") is for artists to create artwork that animates and contributes to the vitality and attractiveness of the urban streetscape, and develops this year's theme of "future directions" as it relates, for example, to city building, transit and climate change.

Deadline for proposal: Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 by 4 p.m. EST
