More than 1000 communities throughout the world foster twinning relationships with one another as a way to advocate for world peace and global understanding. The City of Burlington is fortunate to have twinning agreements with the City of Itabashi, Japan and the City of Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.

To celebrate this unique relationship, the public art program is commissioning two Ontario artists to create digital artwork that will be reproduced and installed on electrical boxes located in Spencer Smith Park.

The artwork may be created in a variety of different styles and mediums including digital illustration/graphic design, photography, photograph or scan of original artwork, etc. The artwork should feature imagery, symbols, artistic styles, or themes unique to each twin city. The artist may also wish to incorporate elements relating to Burlington, Ontario into the design.
