Seen In Vancouver #365: “Before I Die” Art Installation Lands In A Chinatown Alleyway

We did a “Vancouver Would Be Cooler If…” post about the original “Before I Die” project in New Orleans by artist Candy Chang in March of last year. It seems we’re a little cooler now, courtesy of local aesthete Dana Ramler. Her effort just went up on the southern end of the alley between Keefer and East Georgia (across the street from The Brixton Cafe), and it hasn’t taken long for every line to be filled. Take a look and bring a hope or two. Personally, before I die, I want a dog. Just sayin’.

  1. I’d like to contact Dana Ramier about this piece. Is it still up? What happened next to it? I saw an article saying she lives in Kits and installed one there but it disappeared. I’d be interested if she would in finding another Kids location.
