The City of Mississauga is encouraging skilled, Canadian artists or artist groups/teams to propose chosen art pieces in order to produce and construct innovative banner artistry. The chosen artist(s) will be accountable for implementing a theme and generating six designs to depict that theme, whereas the City of Mississauga will be accountable for the installation and assembly of all banners. The vision for this project is to enable a creative, captivating, and appealing visual portrayal of the City of Mississauga.
Selected artist(s) will also receive a complimentary fee of $7,000.00 + HST for the design and layout of the banners. The fabrication and installation of the banners will be covered by the City and will not be included in this cost. The banners will be displayed in Mississauga’s downtown communal area, specifically on Living Arts Drive, Prince of Wales Drive, as well as Princess Royale Drive. This presence will take place from June to November 2019.
Submissions for this project will be accepted until Monday, March 25 2019.
