About the Wall

Midtown’s Before I Die Wall came to life through a partnership between the Midtown Association and Snowline Hospice, a community-based non-profit hospice. This popular interactive pop-up art project was created in hopes to inspire people to reflect on their lives and share their personal aspirations in a public space.

Where the idea came from

The Midtown Before I Die wall is inspired by artist Candy Chang's Before I Die Project. After losing someone she loved and experiencing deep depression, artist Candy Chang created an interactive wall on an abandoned house in her neighborhood to create an anonymous place to help restore perspective and share intimately with neighbors while remaining an introvert.
