WSU art project inspires people to reflect on life

Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – An art project called “The Wall” at Wright State is inviting people to reflect on their lives. It was inspired by a global art project: “Before I Die.”

Students in the Communicating Through Chronic Illness and End of Life course set up a makeshift blackboard at various locations on campus.

People can write about what they want to do before they die, forcing them to think about what matters most.

“It’s meant for us to explore all of those conversations that we often fail to talk about or fail to encounter for lots of difficult reasons. So it gives students the opportunity to think about what it means to live with a chronic illness or to focus on the kind of communication we need to have around that,” says Marie Thompson, Associate Professor at Wright State University.

There are more than 5,000 similar canvassing all around the world.
