Ohio, USA

After hearing Candy Chang speak during a panel discussion in Philadelphia, Whitney was inspired and determined to bring the Before I Die project to Columbus, Ohio. With sponsorship support from the Franklinton Arts District, and a LOT of construction help from Mitchell, the Columbus wall was born!

The wall debuted on August 6, 2013 at the Franklinton National Night Out event at Avondale Elementary. The wall’s next stop is Urban Scrawl, an annual 2-day festival taking place on August 17-18, 2013. Each year the festival features the live creation of murals by Columbus artists, as well as performances by musicians, DJs and breakdancers.

For more updates on the project as it travel throughout Columbus, follow @BeforeIDieCbus, on Instagram & Twitter #beforeIDieCbus.

I want to house and feed everyone.

I want to see my parents.

I want to see my grandkids grow.
