Before I Die Project - Asheville


 This wall is on Biltmore Ave in Asheville near Doc Chey's.  If you are not familiar with the project here is some background.

"After losing someone she loved, artist Candy Chang painted the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood in New Orleans with chalkboard paint and a stenciled sentence, "Before I die I want to _____.!  Within a day of the wall's completion, it was covered in colorful chalk dreams as neighbors stopped and reflected on their lives.  Since then, more than 500 Before I Die walls have been created in over 65 countries and over 30 languages by passionate people all over the world."

To read more about this project or see more walls visit Before I Die.
