City of Mississauga – Request for Proposals
Temporary Public Art: Skate Park Digital Murals

DEADLINE: Sunday, May 30, 2021 by 11:59 p.m. EST.

The City of Mississauga’s Public Art Program invites emerging Mississauga artists or artist teams to submit proposals to create original digital artwork for Mississauga’s Sculpture Court, a multi-use ramp and skateboarding park in downtown Mississauga (300 City Centre Drive).

Artists are asked to propose artwork that considers the park users and engages viewers in a conversation that explores the relationship between urban design/architecture and community. Artwork should engage Mississauga’s residents and skate park users in a dialogue of how they view and interact with the public realm and evoke a sense of community belonging.
