Parking Day Installations
Lakeshore Road, Port Credit, Mississauga
September 19 – 30, 2012

The Port Credit BIA and the City of Mississauga are seeking artists, art groups, architects, designers and/or engineers to submit proposals to temporarily transform an on-street parking space in Port Credit into a public space this fall as part of the international event Parking Day (September 21) and Culture Days 2012 (September 28-30).

Up to four Parking Day Installation proposals will be selected, each winner will receive $8000 total (a $500 prize and a budget of $7,500 for each winning team to design and construct the structure). We are looking for imaginative ideas to create a vibrant streetscape. The installations are intended to be both public art and street furniture and shall aesthetically enhance the overall streetscape, providing space for people in a place usually reserved to park a car.

  • Marion Klinnert, Port Credit BIA Board & Beautification Committee Chair
  • Marion Morewood, Port Credit BIA Chair & Parking Committee Chair
  • Helena Grdadolnik, Public Art Coordinator, Culture Division, City of Mississauga
