Before I die...
Before I Die is a global art project inviting people to contemplate death and reflect on their lives. Yolo Hospice, YoloArts, and City of Woodland have collaborated to bring Before I Die to Woodland. The interactive public art wall is installed at 518 Main Street, between First and College, in downtown Woodland. The public is invited to participate.
Originally created by artist Candy Chang on an abandoned wall in New Orleans, Before I Die is a global art project. This public wall has been produced more than 2,000 times in 70 countries, and presented in 35 languages. The participatory art exhibit invites passers-by to complete the sentence, "Before I die, I want to..." by writing on the wall with chalk to contribute a heartfelt wish, a goal, or an intention.

Together We Rise
Glass mosaic, 2017
Together We Rise speaks to the complexity and inter-connectivity of all our lives. The phoenix birds symbolize the youth as part of the fabric of the society; they are supported, interconnected, and an important part of the community. They are rising in an upward trajectory as they learn to reclaim their future.
