BEFORE I DIE...
2nd Floor Foyer - through MAY 24
After Candy Chang lost someone close to her, she was inspired to remind herself
and others what was really important in life. With Chang’s project, public spaces
are suddenly taken over by spray paint and chalk, begging passers-by to finish the
sentence “Before I die I want to _____ .” Her highly successful project has been
created all over the world in more than 60 countries and almost as many languages,
tying us all together with one common thread, while showing us that our shared
spaces can help us make sense of the beauty and tragedy around us.
