Okay, I’m a week or so late for this, but…
Happy 90th birthday, Yoko Ono!
You may not appreciate Ms. Ono’s avant-garde melodies and artwork as much as her many devoted fans around the globe do, but you must surely appreciate her lifelong boundless spirit and passionate love of humanity, so, please wish her well and take a moment of reflection or say a prayer for peace in her honor.
To commemorate her 90th birthday on Saturday, more than 50 artists and fans gathered at the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park to take part in “Morning Piece for Yoko Ono,” a 1960s-style art happening that doubled as a celebration.Image and excerpt courtesy of the New York Times
One Woman Show (1971) included everything that made Ono such a revolutionary artist. Looking at the array of objects and ephemera included in One Woman Show (2015), you can’t help but marvel at the distilled perfection of her first museum visitation.Image and excerpt courtesy of Forbes

I am not a fan of Yoko’s art & music but I respect her. She had to deal with becoming a widow untimely & kept her grace about it like Jackie Kennedy did. I don’t believe she broke up the Beatles either. A 90-pound woman can’t force a man to do anything.
Thank you, Kurt, for this post! I have long admired Yoko Ono, and my admiration has grown over the years. She was born 8 months before my mother (who now rests in peace).
