Located at 1420 Crescent Street in Montreal, Quebec.

In tribute to a Montréal icon, a larger-than-life mural commemorating singer, songwriter and poet Leonard Cohen gazes tenderly down upon Crescent Street. The towering image depicts Cohen, sporting his signature fedora with his hand over his heart and, in the background, his highly symbolic Unified Heart icon.

Led by Montréal artist Gene Pendon and internationally renowned American street portrait artist El Mac, “Tower of Songs” took 2 muralists, 13 assistant artists, 240 cans of paint and thousands of hours of work to replicate a photograph taken by his daughter, Lorca Cohen. This immense 10,000 square-foot mural rising 21 storeys above the city can easily be admired from the Mount Royal Observatory as well as from the Glass Court of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts.
