RFP - Temporary Public Art: Bee Hotel
City of Mississauga
Temporary Public Art: Bee Hotel
DEADLINE: Friday, March 29, 2019 by 4:00 p.m. EST
Solitary bees do not live in colonies, do not produce honey, are non-aggressive, and rarely sting. Unfortunately, these important pollinators are experiencing rapid population decline due to habitat loss, loss of food sources, disease and pesticide usage. By providing a refuge for female solitary bees to rest and lay eggs, bee hotels can be an effective approach to supporting the populations of wood-nesting, tunnel-nesting, and cavity-nesting bees.This public art project will combine artistic excellence and creativity with environmental conservation. The Bee Hotel will promote the conservation of Mississauga’s natural environment and inspire eco-friendly actions and values through compelling, unique, innovative public art.
Total budget for this project is $7,000.00 + HST.
