Yoko Ono, the Japanese artist, musician, author and wife of late Beatle John Lennon, has leased 10,000 square feet at 76 Wooster Street, the New York Observer reported, to exhibit Lennon’s artwork.

The exhibition will run for four days this weekend inside the four-story brick building between Spring and Broome streets, the Observer said, in honor of what would have been Lennon’s 71st birthday. Ono’s Legacy Productions is paying $4,000 to rent the space, owned by John Pasquale, CEO of PEP Realty.

Pasquale said the building and the neighborhood are full of history.

“It was formerly Grace Jones’ restaurant, and reportedly it was a reclusive hideout of Andy Warhol years ago,” he said. [NYO]
