Yoko Ono has spread a message of peace through global billboards.
he 89-year-old artist’s message – “Imagine Peace” – can be seen in London, Berlin, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Milan, New York and Seoul.
The installation, which includes local translations of the mantra, will air every night at 8:22 p.m. in March.
The billboards were installed with Circa in collaboration with Serpentine.
A limited edition Yoko Ono print will also be sold, with all proceeds going to the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (UNCERF).
It comes 53 years after peace activists Ono and her late husband Beatle star John Lennon staged their first bed-in, a week-long protest from their bridal suite showcasing their commitment to social justice.
Over the years, Ono has worked hard to promote peace, inviting the world to unite through billboards, ads, posters, and tweets since the early 2000s.
In 2007, Ono conceived the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, Iceland, in memory of Lennon, which acts as a beacon for world peace.

She said, “Imagining is something we can all do, even if we have different opinions about how to get there.”
The ‘Imagine Peace’ artwork on display in London’s Piccadilly Circus on Thursday marks the 20th of May.
