Temporary public art

The City’s temporary public art program supports the creation of art by emerging and established artists. Temporary public art can be a powerful tool to respond to contemporary social issues and reshape how we view our physical and social environments.

Temporary public art often comes in the form of street art, murals, banners, festivals, and installations. These artworks can last anywhere from a few months to 15 years.

Flowing Together

Ryan Smeeton, Acrylic paint and premium spray paint, 2023

Mural with colourful depiction of athletes and nature


As part of the Tomken Twin Pad Arena Redevelopment, artist Ryan Smeeton was commissioned to paint a mural on the outside of the building. In “Flowing Together”, Ryan created a beautiful, welcoming landmark that inspires appreciation for the recreational services offered at the arena. The artist was also inspired by the abundance of pathways and trails in Mississauga, as well as the proximity of the arena to Little Etobicoke Creek and its wildlife.
