EC Fredonia visits SUNY Fredonia’s Before I die… wall.
The social project was started by artist Candy Chang in New Orleans, and has since gone global. After a dear friend passed away, Chang decided to reach out to her community in a display of anonymous connectivity. She painted an abandoned house in her neighborhood with blackboard paint, and a simple statement: Before I die, I want to ________. Passersby used multi-colored chalk to fill in the blanks and create a rainbow of hopes and dreams.
The Fredonia wall, like so many others around the world, lets us all admit a real desire and find solace in the admission of others…not so different from ourselves.
Today EC Fredonia students left their mark.
