Call for Submissions – Hoarding Mural
Public Art Installations for Perimeter of a Construction Site in Mississauga’s City Centre

Daniels CCW Corporation on behalf of The Daniels Corporation is inviting artists/artist teams to submit proposals to be considered for a public art installation to be displayed around the perimeter of a construction site in Mississauga. The proposal process will involve consulting with staff members from Daniels on the design and fabrication of the work to arrive at a final concept.

There are 3 stages to the proposal process (outlined below).


PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Wesley Tower is the newest addition to the 23-acre, master-planned, mixed-use community Daniels City Centre in Mississauga. The new 43 storey residential tower will be located at the corner of Confederation Parkway and City Centre Drive in Mississauga.

The proposed art installation project includes a digitally-rendered mural to be printed onto the construction hoarding. The hoarding will be located along City Centre Drive at the intersection of City Centre Drive and Confederation Parkway in Mississauga. The artwork portion of the hoarding will be approximately 30 feet with a break in the middle. The artwork will be repeated once.

The desired aesthetic for the mural is a collection of images that celebrates the vibrancy of the community and amenities near to the neighbourhood. Murals that are primarily black and white with accents of the marketing colours are preferred. More marketing images can be found here: http://danielscitycentre.com/

One artist (or artist team) will be chosen for the project.
