In 2014, 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) and the 45th anniversary of UQAM in 2014 and 10th anniversary of the Grande Bibliothèque in 2015.

As part of its collection Montreal’s Great Artists, MU is paying homage to Emile Nelligan and Montreal poets (Gaston Miron, Hélène Monette, Josée Yvon, Marie Uguay and Hector de Saint-Denys Garneau) with a mural created by Les Hommes de lettres.
