Imagine Peace Tower to be unveiled by Ono in Iceland

LOS ANGELES (AP) Yoko Ono will unveil the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, Iceland, on Oct. 9 ― on what would have been husband John Lennon's 67th birthday.

Lennon was shot and killed outside their New York City apartment by deranged fan Mark David Chapman on Dec. 8, 1980.

"This is something that we spoke about 40 years ago," Ono said by phone earlier this week before heading for Iceland. "Our dream is finally coming true."

The Imagine Peace Tower is a tall beam of light that will emanate from a wishing well bearing the words "imagine peace" in 24 languages.

The tower will be lit each year from Oct. 9 to Dec. 8, "so it has the feeling of the shortness of life, but the light is eternal," Ono said.

Ono, 74, came up with the concept for the light tower in 1965. Lennon was interested, she said.

"He was visualizing then that it would probably become a reality one day," she said.

When she turned 70, Ono decided she needed a place to keep the thousands of wishes she had collected through the "wish trees" she had set up at gallery shows around the world.

"I was collecting the wishes for world peace, of course," she said. "I thought: 'I have to put them in a tower or something . . . a peace tower.' "

With that, she set out to make her conceptual light sculpture a reality.
