The City of Mississauga invites professional artists and illustrators with a connection to Mississauga to submit proposals to create original banner artwork.

Banner artwork will be on display in Clarkson Village, Malton, Port Credit, Streetsville, Cooksville, and the Downtown Core.
This public art project is a collaborative initiative between Public Art, Tourism Mississauga, and our local BIAs in support of Mississauga Made, an online initiative inspired to support and promote local Mississauga products, businesses, and artists within our community.
