Yoko Ono is keeping the dream alive with the traveling exhibition of John Lennon’s artwork that lands in Red Bank this weekend and benefits the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, and I had a chance to speak with her about the show, and John, recently.

This weekend, of course, is significant in that it marks the anniversary of John Lennon’s passing on December 8, 1980.

Ono encourages John’s fans to mark the anniversary of his death by celebrating his art and his love of Christmas.

The show, “So This is Christmas: Experience the Art of John Lennon’’, will land at 21 Broad Street (next to Hamilton Jewelers) in downtown Red Bank.

The dates and times of this special show:

Friday, December 6th: 12pm to 8pm

Saturday, December 7th: 11am to 7pm

Sunday, December 8th: 11am to 6pm

Yoko talked with me about the show, John’s legacy, and what her late husband and Icon might have to say if he was here to give us a message, as well as what he would have been excited about in today’s world.
