As of last week, Yoko Ono's Wish Tree for Pasadena art installation has garnered over 10,000 wishes from the public. The project, which began on August 2, consists of 21 living crape myrtle trees installed amongst the café tables and chairs in the Courtyard of One Colorado. Visitors are invited to write their wishes on pieces of paper and hang them on the tree branches. They are being added at the pace of around 1,250 per day, project coordinators said to LAist in an e-mail adding that "the installation has taken off in ways that none of us imagined, and it becomes more beautiful with every new wish."
