Mississauga is asking professional artists to submit their proposals for a new permanent public art memorial that will pay tribute to people who have died from car accidents in the city.

The new Vision Zero memorial will be a place for friends and family of lost loved ones to gather and reflect. The memorial will acknowledge and remember losses that haven taken place on the road.

The City is looking to commission a memorial that is easily accessible and barrier free. It needs to be created in a highly visible and accessible location that has lots of green space.

“Artists with experience or artistic practices rooted in accessibility, justice, and meaningful community engagement are highly encouraged to apply,” the City of Mississauga said.

The total budget for all artist fees and expenses related to this project is $100,000. This money will cover costs associated with the project such as the price of relevant materials, travel costs for going to the site, fabrication, artwork installation and more.

Artists have until September 9 to submit their proposals.
