European Peace Monument
Unveiled by Julian and Cynthia Lennon on what would have been John's 70th Birthday, the European Peace Monument dedicated to John is a fitting tribute to John’s enduring message of peace. Located opposite the Echo Arena, the monument is the perfect place to consider your memories of John and the possibility of world peace.
Commissioned by the Global Peace Initiative, an American arts organisation dedicated to creating peace monuments around the world to promote global peace, the European Peace Monument was created by American art prodigy Lauren Voiers. Ms Voiers had been personally asked by John's son Julian to incorporate, within the monument's design, a white feather which to John Lennon's eldest is a symbol of both his father's spirit and of peace. As Julian explains: "One of the things my father said to me was that should he pass away, if there was some way of letting me know he was going to be ok, it was by, in some shape or form, presenting me with a white feather."
The monument gives hundreds of thousands of visitors to the city the opportunity to celebrate the life and spirit of Lennon and his message of peace. Jerry Goldman, Managing Director, The Beatles Story comments: "This monument is both a tribute to one man's dedication to global peace through his art and a focal point for those looking to consider the real concept of peace in the 21st century."
The European Peace Monument is located at its permanent home outside Arena & Convention Centre Liverpool (ACC), the European Peace Monument is the first physical focal point for fans to congregate and remember the artistic and creative legacy of a world icon.
