IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is an outdoor work of art conceived by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon. It is situated on Viðey Island in Reykjavík, Iceland [map]
The artwork was dedicated to John by Yoko at its unveiling on October 9th 2007, John Lennon’s 67th birthday.
IMAGINE PEACE TOWER symbolizes Lennon’s and Ono’s continuing
campaign for world peace  – which began in the sixties, was sealed by
their marriage in 1969 and will continue forever.
Inscribed on the walls of the Wishing Well is the phrase IMAGINE PEACE, translated into 24 different languages.
IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is composed of a tall shimmering tower of lights. It appears every year and is visible from October 9th (John’s birthday) until December 8th (the anniversary of his death).
In addition, the Tower will illuminate from Winter Solstice (December 21st) and into the morning of the New Year (January 1st) as well as the first week of spring (March 20th -27th) the dates of John & Yoko’s wedding and honeymoon.
It is lit from 1 hour after sunset until midnight, and until dawn on New Year’s Day. On October 9th and from March 20th – 27th, it lights at 8pm.
In tribute to Yoko, the City of Reykjavik also lights IMAGINE PEACE TOWER on her birthday, February 18th, from 7pm until 9am the following day.
One of the mesmerising features of the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is that the strength, intensity and brilliance of its light continually changes with the prevailing weather and atmospheric conditions unique to Iceland.
On a cloudless night, it creates a clear pillar of light. In rain or snowfall, you can see the beams irridescing with rainbow refractions. When cloudy, it dramatically lights up and reflects off any moving layers of cloud.
