Visitors to to the Yoko Ono art exhibit at Toronto’s Gardner Museum will get a chance to take home pieces of the installation as it winds down this weekend.
The Gardiner says the first 500 visitors to “Yoko Ono: The Riverbed,” on Sunday morning will receive white boxes to fill with some of the broken ceramic cups and saucers that made up the exhibit
The activity will mark the end of the exhibit’s three month stay in Toronto. It encouraged visitors to shape the three-part installation by mending broken ceramics and nailing string into the gallery walls. Visitors will also be allowed to take photos of the exhibit for the first time.
Ono, who is 85, is a Japanese multimedia artist, singer, songwriter, and peace activist who is the widow of Beatle John Lennon.
