Candy Change: Before I Die

After losing someone she loved, artist Candy Change painted the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood in New Orleans with chalkboard paints and stenciled the sentence ” Before I die I want to ____.” Within a day of the wall’s completion, it was covered in colorful chalk dreams as neighbors stopped and reflected on their lives. Since then, more than 500 Before I Die walls have been creates in over 65 countries and over 30 languages by passionate people all over the world. The Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach presents an exhibition of these walls, on view May 26 – September 29.
