Local Art for New Residential Mid-rise Lobby at Mount Pleasant Village

Daniels Choice Mount Pleasant Corporation, on behalf of The Daniels Corporation, invites Brampton-based artists or artist teams to submit proposals in consideration for the mid-rise lobby at Mount Pleasant Village, located at the northeast quadrant of Bovaird Drive West and Lagerfield Drive in Brampton.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

For The Daniels Corporation (Daniels) each new home community is a work of art — literally. From conception through to completion, every Daniels neighbourhood is designed to enhance its surroundings, the community and to make a statement about its unique character. Daniels has pioneered a new approach to décor and art focused on sourcing local art for each of our new buildings. Within each project Daniels looks to source a wide range of art forms from paintings to photography to sculptures and beyond. This addition of striking local art through community engagement has quickly become a cornerstone of the company’s design philosophy.

Located at Bovaird Drive West and Lagerfield Drive in Brampton, Mount Pleasant Village is a mixed-use development consisting of a high-rise rental tower, a 6-storey mid-rise tower and two blocks of back-to-back townhouses forming one condominium corporation.

One (1) artist will be selected to create the artwork for a feature wall in the lobby area.
