Yoko Ono To Receive Japanese Art Prize
The 78 year old will pick up the accolade next summer (12) at a special ceremony in her native Japan, following in the footsteps of previous recipients including fashion designer Issey Miyake.
The singer/artist has long been an active campaigner for peace and the abolition of nuclear weapons.
An exhibition of Ono's avante-gard artwork will be held in Hiroshima in conjunction with the prizegiving.
