Welcome to your virtual park...

A place for you to discover all 17 poems in the IRONIC OUTFITS collection.

"Linguistic twists and acrobatics.   Wonderful!  Sophisticated nonsense on display.  A happy criss-cross pollination of art and whimsy." 

                                                         - Sheree Fitch, award winning poet, storyteller,

                                                                                 and educator Author of Toes in My Nose and                                                           Other Poems and Mabel Murple

WHAT YOU'D NEVER EXPECT A BEAR TO WEAR (and OTHER IRONIC OUTFITS) is a unique public art project intended to surprise, delight and connect in a low-tech way.  Written by Ottawa-based poet, Jay Brazeau each poem is artfully illustrated by the multi-talented, Juno award-winning Meaghan Smith, printed and dropped in any number of parks in the neighborhoods of Hintonburg and Wellington Village.
