The City of Brampton, in partnership with the Brampton Arts Organization (BAO), has just announced the recent selection of 50 local artists that will make up the foundation of this year’s PIXEL: Digital Art Exhibition.

According to municipal representatives, this year’s slate of local talent comes with expansive artistic backgrounds like dance, quilting, animation and photography. The event operates parallel to Brampton’s 50th birthday, as all submitted work has to evoke a sensation of Brampton’s past and future. 

“The PIXEL: Digital Art Exhibition continues to be a platform for celebrating Brampton’s diverse cultural identity and artistic expression. This year’s exhibition, marking Brampton’s milestone anniversary, promises to captivate audiences with its exploration of our city’s past, present and future,” said Chair of Community Services for the City of Brampton, Rowen Santos, in an official statement. 

According to city officials, the event will run from June to December and will feature up to seven digital artworks on a 24-inch LED screen in downtown Brampton’s Garden Square twice a day. 

Additional works will also be available for public viewing at the BAO’s offices. 

According to city officials, the PIXEL: Digital Art Exhibition has been an annual occurrence since 2021 and has showcased the work of more than 130 Brampton-based creators— all with the intent of showcasing the relentless ambition of local artists. 

“This special exhibition showcases the incredible talent and creativity within our community. I commend Brampton Arts Organization for their ongoing commitment to promoting local creatives and sharing art with the greater community,” said Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown in an official statement.
