The words are by award-winning novelist, Heather O’Neill; the image by artist, Jean Paul Kelly. This provocative combined effort will be appearing on outdoor digital billboards in Toronto’s financial district. “Last Words” is one of 3 artistic endeavors that will be displayed from November 5th to 18th. It’s part of Pattison Onestop’s partnership with the Cape Farewell Foundation on a project called, Ship of Fools: Art and Climate Change. So commuters get ready, it’s not an ad, it’s art! And you’ll find samples in the subway, above the expressway, and on Bay Street. I spoke with Heather O’Neill and Hip Hop artist, Shad, to hear more about their contributions. That’s coming up, tomorrow. (CK)
