CPL’s exhibit offers visitors the chance to share their hopes, dreams, and bucket list

Since November 5th, 2013, Cleveland Public Library (CPL) has offered visitors a unique way to share their voices heard and announce their life’s hopes.  CPL’s Main Library is featuring a wall chalkboard installation of the Before I Die project, which invites passersby to fill in the blank for the prompt, “Before I die, I want to ________.”

CPL joined communities in New York, Memphis, Milwaukee, Little Rock, and Monterrey, México to celebrate “A Day of Walls.”—that Nov. 5th event coincided with the release of the Before I Die book, which featured photos and stories from Before I Die projects around the world. CPL will periodically photograph the installation and share the results online.

“The Before I Die project provides community members the chance to pause from their busy lives, reflect on their dreams, and share those aspirations in a public way,” said Felton Thomas, Director of CPL.  “CPL has a strong tradition of displaying art that inspires contemplation and participation, and we can’t wait to see what the community has to say.”

Before I Die is a global public art project originally conceived after the loss of a loved one by artist Candy Chang, whose first “canvas” for the project was an abandoned house in her New Orleans neighborhood. More than 350 walls have been created in over 25 languages and 60 countries, including Kazakhstan, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Iraq, Argentina, and South Africa. The project has been featured on NBC, CNN, TED, and Oprah Magazine.

The exhibit runs through January 31st, 2014. For more information, visit cpl.org or beforeidie.cc.
