Imagine Peace Tower until 8 December


Every year the Imagine Peace Tower lig­hts up the even­ing sky in Reykjavík from 9 October  (Lennon’s day of birth) through 8 December  (Lennon’s dem­ise). In addition the Imagine Peace Tower emer­ges from win­ter solstice to the New Year, for one week dur­ing spring equinox and few other selected dates.

Imagine Peace Tower a memorial to John Lennon from his widow, Yoko Ono, consists of a tall tower of light, projected from a white stone monument that has the words "Imagine Peace" carved into it in 24 languages. These words, and the name of the tower, are a reference to Lennon's peace anthem "Imagine".

The artwork was dedicated to John by Yoko at its unveiling on October 9th 2007, John Lennon’s 67th birthday.
