John Lennon's Spirit Lives On at the Galleria
See a collection of the artist's work and have your own wish for peace hand-delivered to Yoko Ono.
The holiday season invites reflection and wishes of peace. For the next three days at the Galleria, the public is invited to reflect and wish peace through the work of legendary musician and artist John Lennon. The traveling exhibition of Lennon’s art features a collection of limited edition serigraphs, lithographs, copper etchings of drawings and song lyrics. The music of John Lennon, The Beatles and Yoko Ono will provide an auditory backdrop to the show.As an interactive part of the event, and in the spirit of Lennon’s message of peace, guests will be welcomed to write wishes for peace on decorative cards to be hung on the Wishing Tree at the Galleria. At the close of the event, the cards will be collected to be hand-delivered to Yoko Ono.Tour manager Rudy Siegel said that in the past Yoko Ono has turned public wishes for peace into artwork by photographing them or displaying them in shadow boxes.
