It’s temporary but it’ll be there long enough to post on Instagram 11 times.

A splash of colour is brightening Mississauga’s downtown core, with an art installation merging 52 oak trees with 50,000 feet of colourful paracord.

The Hurontario St. median at Burnhamthorpe Rd. is hosting the public art piece, grouping covered trees into 11 clusters, representing city wards.
Marisa Gallemit, Taline Jirian, and Michael Simon are city commissioned artists behind the Lifeline Project, emphasizing the importance of wrapping trees with burlap in order to shield them from winter damage and sub-zero temperatures.
