John Lennon and Yoko Ono are making their way to campus — in art form that is. Not only will Virginia Tech be screening “The U.S. vs. John Lennon,” on campus, but “My Mommy is Beautiful,” an exhibit by Ono, will be on display at the Armory Gallery.
Lennon, whose anti-war remarks, “Nothing will stop me. I’ll always say what I feel,” served as the basis of the 2006 documentary, which highlights the Vietnam War. Tech’s School of Visual Arts will be hosting the upcoming event, screening “The U.S. vs. John Lennon,” in the Graduate Life Center at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12. Despite the film being released over six years ago, the concerns about anti-war protestors and government surveillance remain prevalent issues today.
