Montreal airport sign pays tribute to Leonard Cohen

As Montreal pays tribute this month to Leonard Cohen, marking one year since the singer’s death, Aéroports de Montreal (ADM) has updated the main identification sign for Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport with a larger-than-life version of Cohen’s iconic fedora.

Working in partnership with the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montreal (MAC), ADM installed a large-format printed graphic of the hat atop the ‘O’ in ‘Montreal’ and proclaimed, “Hats off to Mr. Cohen!”

The partnership between ADM and MAC is promoting a new multidisciplinary exhibition, ‘Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything,’ which revisits the singer’s life’s work through contemporary art, newly commissioned from both local and international artists.
