Throughout the festival, posters, art, and other work created by students in the School of Arts & Communication will be on display in multiple locations-- the lobby of the Center for the Arts, the Hall of Nations, and the windows of Murphy Library and the ICE Center.  Some of the projects are culminating class projects and others the result of undergraduate research.

Before I Die, I...

Location: Center for the Arts 

Candy Chang created this interactive art project as a single installation to provide a place for herself and other to “share their personal aspirations in a public space.”  Since the first wall was built in 2011, over sixty countries have created similar installations in over thirty languages. Inspired by these walls, UWL began collecting responses in February-- now on display in the Dialogue Space in the Center for the Arts.  View the installation and add your own thoughts! For more information about the project Before I Die.
