Yoko Ono: Wish Trees

Yoko Ono
Wish Trees

LMCC's Arts Center at Governors Island | Café
110 Andes Rd, New York, NY 10004
Café Hours: Wednesday-Sunday from 9am - 5pm

A collaborative project between the artist and her audience, Wish Trees is Ono’s open invitation to viewers to write their wishes on small tags and then hang them on a live tree–creating a living monument to all dreams, big and small. All of the wishes will be returned to Ono and continue on in connection with her IMAGINE PEACE TOWER, a 2007 installation in Reykjavík, Iceland, dedicated to the memory of her late husband John Lennon. More than a million people have shared their wishes with Yoko Ono, and we invite you to add your dream.

About Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono is a New York-based multi-media artist working in performance, instruction, film, installation, music, and writing. A forerunner in conceptual art involving collaboration, audience participation, and social activism since the early 1960s, Ono challenges viewers’ understanding of art and the world around them. Her influence spans many of the key artistic movements of the late 20th century including Fluxus, conceptual art, video art, and feminism. In addition to her work as a visual artist, Ono is also a musical pioneer, both an accomplished singer and songwriter.
