Proudly Together is a public art installation, created in collaboration with sta­ff from the City of Mississauga’s Works Operations and Maintenance Division and the Traffic Management and Municipal Parking Division. The mural references the di­fferent tasks, services, history, and work that goes on in the Mavis Yard.

Given the widespread importance of the Yard, the staff­ that work there, and the energy that goes into keeping Mississauga running smoothly, it was important to harness the vibrancy of these stories while illustrating the work in colour and movement.

The mural is both exciting and energizing, informationally rich yet leaves the viewer curious about what other work goes on in the Yard. This mural showcases a glimpse of the hardworking staff, eff­orts, and initiatives it takes to keep the City of Mississauga safe, accessible, and moving!

Proudly Together was a collaboration between the City’s Public Art Program and the Works Operations and Maintenance Division.
