Before I Die Chi
“Artist Candy Chang has teamed up with the Chicago Urban Art Society and youth-run art gallery Good News Only to bring her interactive public art project Before I Die (previously) to various Chicago neighborhoods. Passersby are confronted with a spray painted canvas bearing the repeated prompt “Before I die…” and can use provided chalk to complete the sentence, creating a public space for spontaneously shared dreams, hopes, fears and aspirations. The piece was installed yesterday in Edgewater and will be making stops in Pilsen, Wicker Park, Chinatown and elsewhere. You can follow the works progress at Before I Die Chi, and if you have a site where the piece can be installed you should get in touch.” (via Colossal)

Before I Die I Want To… experience & enjoy as much of Chicago as possible!

From Chicagoist 

The folks at the Big Map Blog have taken a 1908 map of Chicago’s elevated railroads and boulevard system and coded it so you can zoom in on the detail the original cartographers put into creating the maps.

sweet!
