Yoko Ono: Still giving peace a chance
"A dream you dream alone is only a dream/But a dream we dream together is reality""Now or Never" by Yoko Ono, 1972

Yoko Ono's career spans six decades -- before and now long after her relationship with John Lennon. For two years, Rhonda Cooper, director of Staller Center's University Gallery, has tried to snag the "Yoko Ono Imagine Peace" traveling exhibit since she was tipped off about the show by Stony Brook University sculpture professor Nobuho Nogasawa.Now it's here. And although there's no word yet if Ono herself will appear, her son, Sean Lennon, arrives at Staller for a concert on the exhibit's final day."There's an element of nostalgia to the show," says Cooper, as she was supervising its installation. "But the peace message is very clear."

Imagine peace. That`s exactly what John Lennon wanted us to do over 40 years ago. And now, with the 10 year reflection of the 9/11 tragedy, that`s what Yoko Ono is asking us to do.Each morning, if you`re driving south on I-45 heading into town, you`ll see this billboard: Imagine Peace.It`s a temporary ‘peace’, on loan from and signed by Yoko Ono. She`s asking us to not only remember, but pay tribute to the tragedy that happened on September 11. Imagine Peace!

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
