Reykjavík Art Museum is dedicating the year 2019 to public art! And we are bringing artworks that grace our everyday physical world into focus in digital spaces. We will devote seven days to one public artwork at Public Art This Week with its information and images.
This week, we set the spotlight on Imagine Peace Tower by Yoko Ono from 2007. The artwork is placed in Viðey Island.
The Imagine Peace Tower is a work of art conceived by the legendary artist, musician and peace advocate Yoko Ono as a beacon to world peace. The work is in the form of a wishing well from which a strong and tall tower of light emerges. The words ‘Imagine Peace’ are inscribed on the well in 24 world languages.
The installation of the Imagine Peace Tower is a collaboration of Yoko Ono, Reykjavík City, Reykjavík Art Museum, Reykjavík City Museum and Reykjavík Energy.
