Contemplating Child – Mississauga Public Art in the Park

It’s been 5 months since the “Contemplating Child” sculpture was installed at Mississauga Community Common Park, located in the heart of the city centre. Situated on a hilltop at the eastern end of the park, and created by Toronto artist Ferruccio Sardella, this has quickly become a popular landmark and meeting place in the Square One area. Created out of Cor-Ten steel, and weighing 3,500 pounds, we often see people taking photos here, and children hanging out and climbing on the structure.

Mississauga public artContemplating child is one of a series of recent public art additions in the City of Mississauga. Ferruccio Sardella is an artist based in Toronto, and he has a website here.

When I first saw this in August, 2014, I thought it more resembled “sad and lonely” child, or maybe “hungover adult”, but it has grown on me, there is certainly an interesting quality about the piece. Feel free to comment and tell us what you think about this sculpture, and all the other recent public art installations in #Mississauga. Personally, I think they are all great, each one is completely different from the others, each has a specific message to relay, and each of them humanizes and adds a certain amount of charm to the city centre.
