……..And imagine if Yoko Ono created this mural in a subway station adjacent to The Dakota, where she shared her life with husband John Lennon from 1973 until his death, and where she still lives today.

The 72nd Street B/C Subway Station, undergoing a major renovation, just reopened with six mosaic panels spread throughout the station from 70th Street to 72nd Street, created by Yoko Ono.

The panels are aptly entitled Sky and include phrases within the clouds, like Imagine Peace and Dream and Remember Love. “It will bring the sky underground, so it’s always with us,” Yoko said in a statement. “I hope this will bring peace and joy to my fellow New Yorkers for many years to come.”

Through MTA Arts and Design, the series of intricate ceramic mosaic murals of cloud-filled skies, was fabricated by Mosaic Art and Design.  “I’m thrilled that my new work, Sky, is at the 72nd Street Subway Station, just steps from my home and Strawberry Fields, which I created in memory of my late husband” said Ono.

The 72nd Street B/C Station is one of the first to reopen after a major renovation which included structural repairs, LED lights, digital signage, and new seats. So clean……
