Peace Tower, 40 Years Later
March 1st, 2006

In 1966, hundreds of artists contributed works to the Peace Tower, also known as “Artists Tower Against the War in Vietnam,” which stood for a few months in Los Angeles. Forty years later, another 200 artists — including Chuck Close, Sol LeWitt, Yoko Ono, Kiki Smith, and several who contributed to the 1966 tower, such as James Rosenquist and Judy Chicago, — have contributed individual 2′ by 2′ panels to a new Peace Tower, 50 feet high, in the Whitney Museum Sculpture Court, part of the Whitney Biennial, which opens to the public tomorrow.

    With an energy crisis and an approaching fiscal crisis, but also an unpopular war and the fear of nuclear terrorism, sometimes I’m not sure if we are on the verge repeating the 1960s or the 1970s. Either would not be good.
