Imagine Peace Tower Illuminated Tonight

Yoko Ono invites locals and visitors in Reykjavík to sail to Viðey island tonight for the 13th annual lighting of the Imagine Peace Tower. Rides on the Viðey island ferry will be free of charge from 5.30pm as well as buses from Hlemmur bus terminal to Skarfabakki pier starting at 5.15pm. The tower will be illuminated at 8.00pm, but the evening has a full program including live music and guided tours starting at 5.45pm.

The Imagine Peace Tower is an outdoor work of art conceived by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon. The white stone monument emits a tower of light, which extends upward at least 4,000 metres (13,100 feet) on a clear night. The words “Imagine Peace” are inscribed on the monument in 24 languages. The tower is lit every year from October 9th, Lennon’s birthday, through December 8th, the date of his assassination.

The full program for the evening can be seen on the City of Reykjavik website (scroll down for English).
