Have you heard of The City of Words project? Conceived by Blue Metropolis, it involves permanently displaying quotes from prominent Montreal writers on buildings across the city. I love the idea of promoting art and poetry using murals in urban centres. Some of the writers they've selected include Nicole Brossard, Leonard Cohen, Mordecai Richler, and Michel Tremblay.
