"IMAGINE PEACE: Think PEACE, Act PEACE, Spread PEACE.
Let us come together to realize a peaceful world" ~ Yoko Ono.
Yoko Ono's IMAGINE PEACE is a public art installation presented by Art Production Fund as part of the London 2012 Festival, a spectacular 12-week nationwide celebration from June 21 to September 9 2012, bringing together leading artists from across the world.
The project will consist of Yoko Ono's IMAGINE PEACE message, translated into 24 world languages, appearing on London 2012 Live Sites screens, and screens at Victoria Park, Hyde Park, and Art on the Underground/Canary Warf.
Accompanying this installation is John Lennon's historic anthem Imagine, from 1971.
IMAGINE PEACE is artist Yoko Ono's worldwide initiative of anti-violence. This ongoing project uses internet projects and presence, posters, thoughts, badges, and a multitude of other medias to communicate its message of peace to the global community.
Past IMAGINE PEACE projects include the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER in Reykjavik, Iceland (2007) and IMAGINE PEACE for PAUSE at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas produced by Art Production Fund (2010).
The impact of this campaign is tremendous and continues to grow. Over the past few years the artist has also collected over 1 million wishes, to be sent to the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER in Iceland. Yoko Ono has nearly 2.4 million Twitter followers, 2.5 million views on YouTube as well as hundreds of thousands of supporters through other social media outlets.
