A possible Louisville edition? Let’s see!
Before I Die is a public art project that invites people to reflect on their lives and share their personal aspirations in public space. Painted with chalkboard paint and stenciled with the sentence “Before I die I want to _______”, the wall aims to create public spaces that better reflect what is important to us as a community and as individuals.
“But the lovely thing is that performance breaks down all the categories one easily falls into.”
- RoseLee Goldberg
