Non-profit hosts "Before I Die" project on Franklin St.

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

A “Before I Die” wall was put up along Franklin Street in Evansville Saturday.

Project Reveal, a non-profit that provides services to women, has circulated the wall to more than 1,000 places around the world.

The project is part of a national movement started by artist Candy Chang. Chang started it when she turned an abandoned house into a giant chalkboard, where she wrote “Before I die, I will....” and she had others fill in the blank. 

Those that started the project say its purpose is to inspire people. 

"They're just seeing that they're stuff isn't quite so unattainable when you see what other people are trying to do themselves," said Stacey Godbold, Project Reveal. 

The wall, sitting off of Franklin Street, ran out of room quickly, as more and more people from all over the Tri-State began to open up.

Organizers say the wall created a sense of empathy and reminded participants to eliminate negativity in their lives.
