public art: before i die

"Before I Die" is a public art work created by Candy Chang that has been serialized globally and now is hosted in Savannah in two locations: 109 Martin Luther King Boulevard and 31st Street at Waters Avenue. The interactive board is brought to us by SeeSAW (See Savannah Art Walls) and championed by Matt Hebermehl and James "Dr. Z" Zdaniewski along with Megan Luther and Francis Allen all currently of Savannah. I visited all the public art sites in the city yesterday and was honored and touched to see three generations of Buceys at each location.
