The City of Mississauga Public Art Program, in partnership with Parks and Forestry, invites Canadian professional artists or artist teams to submit proposals to create an original public artwork, to be located in Erindale Park (1695 Dundas St W.).
Artists are asked to propose artwork that responds to the connection between land and water, focusing on aquatic ecosystems and how actions on land can affect (positively and negatively) the aquatic ecosystem.
This public art project will combine artistic excellence and creativity with environmental conservation. The Erindale Park Installation will inspire eco-friendly actions and values by demonstrating responsible stewardship of urban ecosystems and contribute to Mississauga’s cultural identity by creating compelling and unique public art.
The commissioned artist(s) will be responsible for all fabrication and installation. The artwork will be installed for at least a one-year period starting in August 2020.
Total budget for this project is $7,000 + HST.
Submission will be accepted until May 11, 2020, at 4:00 PM
