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!

With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer - living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl pursues Frank across the country. Along the way, though, both Frank and Carl forge an unlikely friendship and discover a way to ultimately work together. (courtesy of Music Theatre International)
