Artist Yoko Ono hung a wish for love and peace in the world from a tree she dedicated Monday at the Hirshhorn Museum’s Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. The “Wish Tree for Washington D.C.” is part of an ongoing project Ono started in the 1990s to encourage the public to get involved in art. Viewers can write their wishes on small pieces of paper and tie them onto the tree. Ono’s wish read, “Let’s cover the planet with our love and make it a peaceful world for all of us and our offsprings.” Others’ wishes on the Hirshhorn tree were for peace in Africa, an end to gang violence and “to get a promotion this year.” Ono, widow of singer John Lennon, said she has collected more than 100,000 wishes from people around the world, including those from other wish trees in Europe and Asia. The wishes will become part of her “Imagine Peace Tower,” opening October in Reykjavik, Iceland. “Any wish that you make is part of the wishes of the human race,” said Ono. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
