Wishing on a Tree


Yoko Ono: Wish Tree (Smithsonian)The museums of the Smithsonian Institution line Washington’s National Mall and are a popular destination for visitors to the nation’s capital. The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is dedicated to modern art and houses one of the most extensive collections of contemporary art in the world. One of its most popular attractions is not a painting or a sculpture but a tree planted by Yoko Ono in memory of her husband, and former Beatle, John Lennon. VOA’s Irina Van Dusen introduces us to the museum’s Wish Tree, a living piece of interactive art.
