New York Times visits Lennon display

The New York Times checks out the new display of John Lennon memorabilia at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex, accompanied by Yoko Ono.

Nearly everything in the exhibition belongs to Ms. Ono and draws on material she has lent to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s main museum in Cleveland and to the John Lennon Museum in Tokyo. Also featured are items that have never been on public display before, among them a collage that Lennon made for George Harrison during a visit to Tokyo in the late ’70s, that, spookily, includes the surgeon general’s warning about the dangers of smoking. (Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001.)
