Before I Die: The book
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.
