Candy Chang reimagines public spaces to help us make sense of our lives. After losing someone she loved, she created the Before I Die public art project on an abandoned house in her neighborhood in New Orleans to invite people to share their personal aspirations in public space. Since then, over 400 Before I Die walls have been created by people in over 60 countries. Chang has also completedpublic projects in New Orleans, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, and New York City. Her work has been exhibited in the Venice Biennale, and the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and she is a TED Senior Fellow, a Tulane Urban Innovation Fellow, and a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. Chang is also a Taubman College and Stamps School alumnus.
