Not The Final Version,
Not The Only Leonard Cohen Montreal Mural
As this excerpt [via Google Translate] from Une image du projet de murale en hommage à Leonard Cohen dévoilée (TVA Bouvelles: June 12, 2017) indicates, the model in the above graphic does not show the actual image of Leonard Cohen that will be depicted in the mural
A first image of what the mural that will be created in honor of the late Montreal singer Leonard Cohen could be unveiled in the City’s documents. The mural, however, will be different from the picture and will instead be based on a photo that will be provided by Mr. Cohen’s family. The mural will be made by the MU on the building located at 1420 Crescent Street, in the downtown area, and will be visible from Mount Royal viewpoint. The project will cost $300,000. The greater part of this amount will be borne by the City of Montreal, or $200,000.
And, this is not the only Leonard Cohen mural going up in Montreal. According to Leonard Cohen looms large at Montreal’s Mural International Public Art Festival by Bill Brownstein (Montreal Gazette: June 9, 2017), there will also be a
nine-storey-high likeness of Leonard Cohen on the south façade of the Cooper Building on St-Laurent Blvd. – just a few hundred metres from where the poet/troubadour had lived for so many years. The Cohen tribute, expected to be complete by the end of the month, is the centrepiece of the fifth Mural International Public Art Festival, which was launched Thursday and will feature works
