Japanese-born artist, musician, and activist Yoko Ono was born in February 18, 1944. In the early part of the 1950s, she along with her family moved to New York City. Ono subsequently enrolled at Sarah Lawrence College. It was at this point that Ono began expressing her ideas as an artist. In 1966, while previewing her own art show in London, she met Beatles band member John Lennon and the pair soon married. Ono is also known for philanthropic contributions and initiatives towards the arts, peace, and AIDS.
