“Before I Die is a global public art project that invites people to reflect on their lives and share their personal aspirations in public space. Originally created on an abandoned house in Candy’s neighborhood in New Orleans after losing someone she loved, the project is about remembering what is important to you and creating public spaces that better reflect what matters to us as a community and as individuals” (Source: beforeidie.cc)
Before I Die is an interactive public art project that invites people to share their hopes and dreams in public space. Painted with chalkboard paint and stenciled with the sentence “Before I die I want to _______”, the wall becomes an enlightening way to understand your neighbors and discover what matters most to the people around you.
The artist who did this did an entire building in an inner city, and, last I knew, continually reprints it black with the statement to be finished by those walking by. There have been some incredible fill-ins... This project is definitely worth looking up on the Internet for yourself, at candychang.com/...
