A Digital Gallery: Imagine Peace

Yoko Ono

Times Square Advertising Coalition, Art Production Fund

A stunning visual message of peace greeted New Yorkers and visitors to the Crossroads of the World as part of a synchronized program on over fifteen of the largest digital screens in Times Square. Yoko Ono’s work, Imagine Peace was December 2012's Midnight Moment, a presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. The month's program was presented in partnership with Art Production Fund.

Imagine Peace is artist Yoko Ono’s worldwide initiative of anti-violence. In the film, "IMAGINE PEACE" is written in 24 languages set over the tranquil imagery of a blue sky background. The piece was transformed into a multi-channel work specifically for the Midnight Moment, and spread the message of peace across Times Square's monumental screens simultaneously, filling the Crossroads of the World with 24 languages of the world.
