"Before I die I want to_____ "- An Amazing Art Project by Candy Chang

From their site..."It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you. When Candy lost someone she loved very much, she thought about death a lot. This helped clarify her life but she struggled to maintain perspective. She wanted a reminder and she wanted to know what was important to the people around her. So with help from old and new friends, she turned the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood in New Orleans into a giant chalkboard and stenciled it with the sentence “Before I die I want to _______.” so anyone walking by can pick up a piece of chalk, reflect on their lives, and share their personal aspirations in public space."

More about the artist......Candy Chang is an artist who wants to make cities more emotional. She believes in the potential of sharing more in public space to improve our communities and ourselves. She is a TED Senior Fellow, a Tulane Urban Innovation Fellow, a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, and was named a “Live Your Best Life” Local Hero by Oprah Magazine. By combining street art with urban planning, activism, and contemplation, she has been recognized for developing new strategies for the design of  cities.
