Before I Die: The book

Published on Written by Posted in Greenbuild

When artist Candy Chang painted the side of an abandoned building in her New Orleans neighborhood with chalkboard paint and stenciled the words, “Before I die...” she never expected it to become a worldwide phenomenon.

Thanks to passionate people around the world who have spearheaded their own walls, there are now over 350 Before I Die walls in over 50 countries and over 20 languages. 

In November 2012, Candy was invited to Greenbuild to build a wall and give attendees an opportunity to share their voice. 

Filled with our hopes, fears, humor, and heartbreak, each wall is a reminder of our shared connections and a chance to contemplate life’s ultimate question. 

On November 5, 2013, the Before I Die book will be published and it will feature the Greenbuild wall.

Pre-order the book today!
