Daniels HR Corporation (Daniels), on behalf of The Daniels Corporation, invites artists from Erin Mills and larger Mississauga community to submit proposals in consideration for the residential areas at The Kith condominiums in Erin Mills. The installation of the artwork will take place in early 2025. The proposal process will involve consulting with Daniels 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 through to completion, every Daniels neighborhood 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.  

The community is located at the southwest corner of Eglinton Avenue West and Erin Mills Parkway. A 15-storey modern condominium in the beautiful master-planned, multi-generational  Daniels Erin Mills community, The Kith is thoughtfully designed to create meaningful connections between people and spaces. Residents will appreciate indoor and outdoor lifestyle amenities  to socialize, play and celebrate an active way of life.  

Opportunities for Local Art at The Kith 

In consultation with Kirkor Architects and Planners, a number of opportunities for social purchasing of local artwork have been identified for the common areas and amenity spaces within the  residential tower to bring the space to life and tie everything together. Look and feel imagery showing the overall design intent for the spaces are included below. A breakdown of the pieces to  be commissioned, medium, and location is included in the Response Cover Page. Artists are invited to submit artwork that is inspired by the overall look and feel/design principles and  inspiration images provided.  

For this opportunity, priority will be given to artists who self-identify as:  

– Having a connection to Erin Mills and the larger Mississauga community: current or former resident, or works within the specific community identified  – Emerging and mid-career artists  

– Diverse individuals belonging to equity-deserving groups including but not limited to members of visible minority groups, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ2S+  people
