WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Cape Fear Community College will be the temporary home of an interactive art project that invites people to share their hopes and dreams in a public space.
Artist Cindy Chang used the experience of a lost loved one to help clarify her life, but she struggle to maintain perspective.
With guidance from friends she turned the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood in New Orleans into a giant chalkboard. On the side of the home, Chang wrote "Before I die I want to _________," to encourage the people in her community to reflect on their lives and share their aspirations with the public.
Her artwork has grown to a national level and large chalkboards were installed at Cape Fear Community College. The chalk boards will be displayed on campus throughout the month of October.
The Lower Cape Fear Hospice and Life Care Center has partnered with Chang to encourage people in the community to "begin the conversation" about advance care planning with this bucket list approach.
