Bonheur d'occasion

Montréal, Canada

MU took up residence on the Savoie Avenue (between St-Denis and the Grande bibliothèque) to paint on the walls an ode to literature, thanks to the talent of several muralists selected by a jury : Jason Botkin, Five Eight, Les Hommes de Lettres, William Patrick & Adam Sajkowski, Gene Pendon, Bruno Rouyère & Dominique Desbiens, and XRAY.

Real encounter between the visual arts and literature, these “murs à mots” (words walls) highlight the history of the area as a center of knowledge (University of Montreal, UQAM, Montreal literary school, etc.), the 100th anniversary of the Saint-Sulpice Librairy (located on the Saint-Denis Street), the 45th anniversary of UQAM and the upcoming 10th anniversary of the Grande Bibliothèque in 2015.
