Yesterday, artist, provocateur and total style icon Yoko Ono attempted to assemble the world's largest human peace sign in Central Park in honor the 75th birthday of John Lennon. Approximately 2,000 peaceniks gathered in the park's Meadow on Tuesday morning to form a pretty prodigious, rainbow-tastic symbol, then jammed out to rock by acts likes Dave Davies.
Photo by @jsovs Nothin but peace and love today. I woke up, activated my debit card, and the woman on the phone told me to "start my day with love and remember to make a difference." Little did she know that this afternoon my team @nyonair and @FlyNYON teamed up with the @lennonbus + @yokoonoofficial for the #imaginepeace human peace sign today in @centralparknyc. #✌🏻️ #❤️ #newyork #newyorkcity #nyc #what_i_saw_in_nyc
Guinness officials confirmed that the sign didn't nearly crack the world record, which the Ithica Festival set in 2008 with 5,814 participants. Still, it looked pretty spectacular from the sky, and Ono seemed satisfied.
Thankyou for coming today. I really appreciate it. I love you! yoko https://t.co/lVWV3h8lp8— Yoko Ono (@yokoono) October 6, 2015
