Indigenous Art Along the Waterfront

By July 19, 2023Parks, Ward 1
Artwork along the waterfront will form a public art trail of works by Indigenous artists. This will include permanent public artworks, murals on buildings near the waterfront and the use of natural materials in public art installations.

Mississauga’s waterfront shoreline along Lake Ontario measures approximately 22 kilometres and extends west from Toronto towards Oakville. While there is Indigenous art located throughout the city, the shoreline of Lake Ontario provides rich opportunities to celebrate and honour Indigenous peoples, their culture, history and ongoing stewardship of the lands and waters.

A new webpage has been launched, and you can find it here.  The content includes an introductory section about the art trail as well as an “About the Curator” section featuring Philip Cote who is working with members of the Mississauga’s of the Credit First Nation and the City’s public art program on this project.
