Yoko Ono advocates peace through art in Harris exhibit

Yoko Ono is one of the most polarizing figures in the history of the Beatles. Fans of the fab four always have an opinion on the wife of John Lennon, not all of them positive. However, Ono and Lennon’s philanthropy and their fight for peace cannot be disputed.Their peaceful philosophies have been encapsulated in the traveling exhibition “Yoko Ono: Imagine Peace,” which opened  Monday at the Harris Art Gallery. The exhibit displays many of Ono’s trademark artworks, showcasing the heavy avant-garde conceptual style that she so often works with throughout her pieces.“Yoko is one of the most influential conceptual artists in the world,” said Dion Johnson, director of University art galleries. “Her work with John and the ideals it brings up like peace… is something very fundamental to the University.”

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