100 Acorns by Yoko Ono

Dear Friends,

My book of conceptual instructions GRAPEFRUIT was first published
in 1964. In the summer of 1996 I picked up from where I left off,
and wrote 100 ACORNS for a website event.

I’m now repeating 100 ACORNS for you to enjoy and participate in,
one Acorn per day through November, December, January and February,
on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest & Facebook.

After each day of sharing the instructions, please feel free to
like, share, comment, message, question, discuss, and/or report
what your mind tells you. I’m just planting the seeds.

Have fun.

  2. Hello Ms. Ono,
    I hope you are well and that you receive this note.

    My name is Sean and I’m a graphic designer (simpletypestudio.com) working in Chicago and I have a new project that I am trying to cultivate. I of course am familiar with your work, but recently discovered your website (this one) and your 100 Acorns project – which is awesome and inspiring! I know you are probably super busy, but would like to extend an invitation to you should you like to participate in my online gallery/blog of inspiration called: http://www.artworkergallery.com and share this 100 Acorns project with a new generation and receptive bunch of next generation creatives.

    Please feel free to check it out and if you’d like to show a select body of work
    and tell the 100 Acorns story, I’d be honored and excited to share.
    Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!

    Keep up the great work and inspiration for us all!

    Writing how you have made the world a better place through your art practices.

    Thank you Yoko 🙂

    Hello Yoko,
    I wrote you before, but this time I am feeling a bit more lucky that you will see it. In November this year I was hacing a really hard time here in Dallas, and I was thinking about how lovely the fall weather is, and then I began to feel a cool breeze in the still humidity and heard acorns drop on the ground, and finally it felt as if the time was right to make some art again myself.
    I worked with a gallery that sponsored your work in Houston, Deborah Colton, and also with the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston where you had a wishing tree. You were one of the main reasons why I took the job as an associate director. Anyway, I hope you consider bringing your sign to Dallas. Since I have been living here, everything has fallen out of place, and a think the people downtown would appreciate your positivity. The homeless population is fairly large for the size of the city, and the peopl ehere are so rich in spirit that it truly makes me smile.
    I hope to meet you one day, as I am a big fan of yours and your John.

    ‎100 beautiful ideas for every day…
    100 beautiful ideas for lifetime…
    100 arguments against violence, aggression and wars…
    And your seeds germinate already… – those school-kids of mine (do you remember these pictures with children to you)- the fact that nine-year-olds know, who Yoko is, who John was – this is my achievement and personal satisfaction :).
    But the fact that they can speak for peace, say why they do not want wars and share their views with all the world – this is your achievement ,indeed!

    Thanks to you, no one of us must be a “nowhere man” and we do not have to create plans “for nobody”.
    Those kids are also your “acorns” – which will grow into strong trees “which will firmly grow into the earth, whose roots will not be pulled out by wind and who will sing in the choir of forest” – we gave peace a chance!
    There is a custom in my country that in autumn children collect acorns and chestnut. They make “people” and animals out of them, they create a chestnut world.
    We will “collect” your acorns and we will build with them (on them)…
    I believe, ( especially today-on my birthday ) it won’t happen only this autumn. These are acorns for much longer than 100 days!
    Lots of love, Anna ( from Poland)
