Yoko’s Wish Tree

When You Wish Upon a Tree at the Hirshhorn

by Brandon Springer — Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden for Smithsonian.com

Some wish for their mothers. Some wish for their fathers. Some wish for siblings or friends, children or partners. Some wishes are rather rude. Some wishes are earnest and sweet.

Yoko Ono’s Washington D.C. Wish Tree is back in bloom in the Hirshhorn sculpture garden this summer.

The tree has stood in the sculpture garden since 2007. It is one of many wish trees around the world installed by Ono as a part of her international peace project IMAGINE PEACE (the name a reference to her late husband’s celebrated album and song).
