"All we are saying is give peace a chance!"
This installation was created in 2009 by artist Linda Covit
and Groupe Cardinal Hardy’s landscape architect Marie-Claude Séguin
. "Give Peace a Chance"
was commisioned by the City of Montreal in Quebec, Canada. Located in Mount Royal Park, which was originally conceived by Frederick Law Olmstead, it commemorates the 1969 bed-in there by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. The crescent shaped path is made of approximately 180 St. Marc limestone slabs. The phrase "give peace a chance" is written in relief on the slabs in forty languages. The work is completed by moss and ferns.
