From the exhibition press release

Yoko Ono Imagine Peace, featuring John & Yoko's Year of Peace, focuses on the thematic ideals of peace and love, and follows the work of Yoko Ono and John Lennon chronologically as solo artists, as a couple in the 1960s, and also includes Ono's recent solo works. (--) Ono’s installations included in the Myers School of Art exhibition are designed to help visitors spread the message of love and peace worldwide through use of stamps, postcards, flashlights, and buttons. These works include: Play it by Trust; Imagine Peace; Onochord; and the Imagine Peace Tower.

The Yoko Ono Imagine Peace exhibition at the Mary Schiller Myers School of Art also features screenings of Ono’s films, the film John Lennon vs. the U.S.A., a performance of Ono’s Cut Piece (1964), a billboard display, boxed-set catalogue, posters and lectures.

An extension of the exhibition includes a performance of Ono’s classic 1964 Cut Piece on Wednesday, Aug. 29, at the Akron-Summit County Public Library. The 7 pm performance will be free and open to the public.

Following its premiere at The University of Akron, the exhibition will travel to the University of Texas at San Antonio this fall, where it will be featured at the school’s Department of Art and Art History.

Originally organized by the Myers School of Art at The University of Akron, the exhibition was curated by Kevin Concannon and John Noga
