Stamps School of Art & Design

Our public spaces are our shared spaces and at their greatest, they can help us make sense of the beauty and tragedy of life with the people around us.” -Candy Chang

Candy Chang put up her first Before I Die wall in 2011 in her New Orleans neighborhood after a friend died and her period of grief eventually turned into a kind of clarity she wanted to share with the world.

Now there are over 425 Before I Die walls in over 25 languages and over 60 countries, including Kazakhstan, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Iraq, Argentina, and South Africa. 

Okay here’s the big bonus: she’s our next Stamps speaker.

And, yippee: she’s an alum.

She’s a brilliant graphic designer, public artist and instigator, and we’re proud to welcome her back to town!  #stampspride!
