The Chicago Urban Art Society and Good News Only have teamed up to install Chicago versions of New Orleans artist Candy Chang's "Before I Die..." wall in Edgewater, Pilsen, Wicker Park and Chinatown. They're looking for spots for two more.

"Before I Die..." encourages residents to fill in the blank in the sentence, "Before I die I want to ____" on a large expanse of chalkboard. Twenty-fifth Ward Alderman Danny Solis helped install the Pilsen wall, and was one of the first to write on it. He wrote, "to see Pilsen as the safest neighborhood in the city."
