The Museum of Modern Art has installed Yoko Ono’s “Wish Tree” in the Sculpture Garden as part of the new exhibit, Contemporary Art from the Collection. The tree has been drawing attention from a steady stream of museum visitors from all over the world who write their wishes on white paper tags and tie them on the tree branches. When the tree is completely covered with wishes, the paper tags are collected and placed in a glass box on the second floor of the museum. The Wish Tree is a tribute to Yoko Ono and John Lennon’s campaign for world peace. It was inspired by Yoko Ono’s childhood in Japan.
