While you are at the block party, visit the Before I Die wall on Broadway just south of Michigan St. We invite the public to add their hopes and dreams to this art installation. Created by the artist Candy Chang, Before I Die is a global art project that invites people to contemplate mortality and share their personal aspirations in public. The Before I Die project reimagines how walls of our cities can help us grapple with death and meaning as a community.
