Inspired by temple wish trees in Japan, Yoko Ono's Wish Tree project is devoted to encouraging the public to take part in artmaking as well as promoting worldwide peace and understanding. Starting in August, her Wish Trees, which will be chosen in relation to the surrounding environment or history of California, will be displayed at One Colorado in Pasadena.

Ono invites people to write wishes (think world hunger, peace, etc) on small, thin piece of paper and tie them to branches. The works will be on display from August 2 through November 9 with a visit from Ono sometime during the three month period.
