Before I die…

An artist down in NOLA decided to reinvent the side of an old abandoned building. They made it into a big chalkboard for the residents to share their “Before I die I want to __________” hopes.


(I love this pirate guy! What is he writing? “tried for pil….” pillaging?!?)


The response was overwhelming! The wall filled up after about a day and people were still going! This was the wall after about 3 days! Unbelievable! So many hopes and dreams 🙂



The artist’s site says, “Responses are being documented and many will be included in a book. Once the wall is filled, we wash the board with water and begin anew again… A project site is in the works. Stay tuned!”


This is such an inspiring idea! Giving people a simple way to express their aspirations publicly! Especially after all the area has been through, I am a HUGE fan of this 🙂


What would you write?
