Hurontario Trees Undergoing Artistic Transformation in Mississauga

In the past, you may have noticed the trees along Hurontario wearing stylish–or not, it depends on your tastes–brown wraps.

Now, those same trees are getting yet another artistic transformation.

Earlier this week, the trees that line the centre of Hurontario started receiving the makeover that will transform them into the city’s latest public art installation.

For the third year in a row, the city’s Public Art Program is collaborating with the Parks and Forestry Division and the arts community to wrap the pyramidal oak trees in the area.

This particular installation (see what’s intended to look like below) was designed in honor of Canada’s150th Anniversary (which will take place in 2017).

The art is meant to celebrate Canada’s inherent diversity and multiculturalism.

So, Mississauga, what do you think? Are you excited about the installation?
