Wish Tree for Washington, DC is a public art work by Yoko Ono.
As a part of her "Imagine Peace" project, it was installed in the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden on April 2, 2007, during the 2007 National Cherry Blossom Festival. In 2010, a wish tree was installed at the Museum of Modern Art.
Paper is provided for the visitor to tie a wish to the tree. The work builds on the Japanese tradition of tying prayers to trees. Returning the paper back to its source evokes an offering.
