Based purely on the number of pics we’ve received of this new interactive public exhibit in Oakhurst, we’d say it’s quite a hit! Here’s a sampling…

Did You Know You Can Donate Bikes to Decatur Active Living? »
Where is this? How long has it been up? Can’t figure out why I missed this. Have been in Oakhurst at least 4 or 5 times in the last week.
It’s right in the Village, (in that median type area with all the trees) between the parking spaces in front of Oakhurst Market/One Step Ahead and East Lake, facing East Lake.
This is great,was it actually installed by Candy Chang?
Super cool. For those of you who have filled it in, what did you say? What would you say?
I’d like to see the northern lights.
Before I die, I hope I get old.
TMBG, I Hope that I Get Old Before I Die.
It’s a long, long rope they use to hang you soon I hope
And I wonder why this hasn’t happened
Why, why, why
And I think about the dirt that I’ll be wearing for a shirt
And I hope that I get old before I die
Love this idea!
DM, there’s a touching story behind the wall, a tribute to the death of someone the creator knows. Will you get the accurate details and edit your original post to include?
thanks, sharon. i’d love to know the story behind this.
After the death of our friend Chad Stroud, we watched Candy Chang’s Ted Talk on the wall she made in New Orleans. We decided to make our own for Oakhurst – it took about 2 months! We put it up this past wednesday evening. You can watch Candy’s talk here: http://www.ted.com/talks/candy_chang_before_i_die_i_want_to.html
Thanks for participating!
what a beautiful story, sarah…thanks for bringing that to oakhurst. very very sorry for your loss.
…I will ensure that I will not rise again in zombie form.
Added that while walking the dizzzzzzzzzog this morning.
- Go hut to hut skiing in Norway
- See Machu Picchu, preferably by hiking up
- See my kids finished with education and training and happily settled in a work field
- Have a grandchild
- See global warming halted
- See public education adequately funded in the U.S., intelligently managed, and implemented successfully
- See decent health care available to all in U.S.; I’ll accept any political or economic solution that actually provides it (vs. theoretically)
Not necessarily in that order of priority.
Hi Sarah! I’m the Before I Die project manager down at Candy’s studio, Civic Center in New Orleans. Your wall looks great! I would love to hear more about your story. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
