Before You Die, What Do You Want to Do?

That was the question artist Candy Chang set out to answer.

After losing a close friend, she got the inspiration to transform an abandoned house down the street into an art project. She painted a grid of “Before I die I want to _________” on the wall closest to the sidewalk. Baskets of chalk were left behind so that anyone who walked by could fill out one of the spaces. The result, shown most often in pictures and quotes, was fascinating.
