Call for Submissions: Local Art for New Residences at Daniels City Centre
Daniels CCW Corporation, on behalf of The Daniels Corporation, invites artists from the Mississauga area to submit proposals in consideration for the residential areas at Daniels City Centre, located at 360 City Centre Drive (northeast corner of Confederation Parkway and City Centre Drive). The installation of the artwork will take place approximately during summer 2020 (East Tower) and late 2020 (West Tower). The proposal process will involve consulting with Daniels CCW Corporation on the design and fabrication of the work to arrive at a final concept, as well as the installation of the piece.
For The Daniels Corporation (Daniels), each new home community is a work of art – literally. From conception to completion, every Daniels neighbourhood is designed to enhance its surroundings, the community and to make a statement about its unique character. Daniels has pioneered a new approach to décor and art focused on sourcing local art for each of our new buildings. Within each project, Daniels looks to source a wide range of art forms from paintings to photography to sculptures and beyond. This addition of striking local art through community engagement has quickly become a cornerstone of the company’s design philosophy.
Daniels City Centre is a master-planned community consisting of the Wesley Tower, a market condominium, and an Affordable Housing Project that will be owned by the Regional Municipality of Peel and managed by Peel Housing Corporation. Daniels City Centre is part of the 23-acre Mississauga City Centre master-planned neighbourhood that includes pedestrian-friendly walkways, tree-lined streets, a three-acre community park and beautiful public art.
