Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 12:00pmAfter losing a loved one, artist Candy Chang painted the side of a house in her New Orleans neighborhood with Chalkboard paint and stenciled the sentence, "Before I die I want to_____." Within a day, her neighbors had covered the wall with their dreams. In the two years since, she has created walls in more than 60 countries. Listen to her story and see public art in a new light. Chang brings art and social interaction to public spaces and thereby redefines space.

Others see her work as expanding the definition of planning and the role of planners.
