New Orleans artist, designer and urban planner, Candy Chang's "Before I Die" interactive public art project has hit the Chicago streets. The project invites people to share their hopes, dreams and aspirations in a public space. The project is brilliant in its simplicity. With the help of volunteers, a wall is covered in chalkboard paint and stenciled with the words "Before I die I want to ______," thereby welcoming passersby to share their dearest wishes with the world using provided pieces of chalk.
"Before I Die" walls have previously been installed in Brooklyn, Montreal and San Diego, and the project will arrive in Denver and Reno, N.V., in May.
Before I die I want to FALL IN LOVE . How would you finish the sentence?
