Reading various blogs as I do, I came across this installation piece that I thought was interesting.
The artist took an abandoned space and transformed it into something to inspire people. She created a chalkboard wall where people passing by could write something that was important to them to complete before they die. The response was overwhelming. Here are some example photos (from the website)
She washed the chalkboard and again in no time the wall was filled again. Amazing. The house has since been sold and although the new owners are supporters of the project they are required to rebuild the home. The last day for the wall will be April 10.
