Local artist "brushes-up" construction site fencing
MISSISSAUGA, ON – The City of Mississauga and Region of Peel recently unveiled some unique and colourful artwork on the construction site paneling for the Burnhamthorpe Watermain Project. The construction site fencing is now showcasing the work of Toronto-based artist, Wenting Li, who is involved with the PATCH Project. The PATCH project is a social enterprise of artists and designers who produce customized public art to meet the unique needs of different construction sites for the duration of the projects.
The artwork, which is titled “The City Builders” highlights the themes of city building and infrastructure, especially water infrastructure. The artwork spans the northeast side of the Duke of York Boulevard and City Centre Drive, across from the Mississauga Civic Centre on Burnhamthorpe Road.

The artwork looks fantastic and has helped reinforce to the residents of downtown Mississauga, in a creative way, our role in building the infrastructure for a strong and vibrant city.” Marc Gelinas, Project Manager
