In 1969 Yoko Ono and John Lennon told the world, “War is over.”

This summer, Yoko Ono is teaming up with THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener to display 10 of her very own works of art that represent peace.

David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM tells 570 News as other museums decided to celebrate war, he chose to celebrate peace, which brought him to Yoko Ono.  

Marskell notes, the works chosen for THEMUSEUM brings a message of peace to the world and the artwork allows the audience to reflect on the message and interact with the piece.
