Torontoist articles remember the Mississauga of the Credit River:
Torontoist‘s goal is to capture the tenor and texture of life in Toronto, to evoke the daily experience of the city in words and images. This includes, especially, the physical shape of the city as it grows and changes, the political and civic developments which provide it with direction, the culture which animates its public spaces, and the history which got it to this point. We try always to be faithful in our rendering of Toronto, and to be fearless in advocating for what we think might make it better.

Bradley House & Public Art
The Museums of Mississauga are currently in the midst of developing a new brand and undergoing a reanimation of it goals, vision and mission.
This exciting time in the history of the Museums is sparking a symbolic creative intervention. A series of temporary commissioned artwork will be exhibited on the exterior of Bradley House from June 1st to June 7th, 2015.
Artist Dan Bergeron has been tasked with making a visual connection between the museum’s important past and aligning it with its contemporary and innovative future. Following this week-long summer event, the artwork will be taken down and Bradley House will be given a fresh coat of yellow paint and restored back to its original splendour between June 8th and June 23rd, just in time for Pan-Am Games and a new exhibition platform at Benares and the Bradley site.
The Culture Division is interested in creating a conversation on new forms of heritage, museums and public art. The focus of this dialogue is to showcase the living history of one of Mississauga’s cultural gems.
Furthermore, the intent of this creative intervention is to draw-in current and prospective audiences as interpreters and stewards of the artwork.
The project is expected to provoke discussion on the value of living heritage as well as appreciation of history and the notion of layering that can tell a multi-pronged story.
This form of creative engagement and storytelling will help emphasize the vital role that historians, artists and other visionaries play in breathing life into our communities and shared histories and living heritage.
