Urban art in community

June 18, 2012 § 1 Comment

Urban. Community. Contemplation. Art.

I love these words. Candy Chang does too. She combines street art with urban planning to create visual space for discussion to happen among community members.

One of her most recent work was the I Wish This Was project, which individuals shared what they want where they want with a sticker. Vacant buildings and broken doors soon turned into conversation pieces of what could be, what is needed, or what change has yet to happen among community members. View more of her inspirational work below.

This woman has inspired me. She has given me hope and creativity for the urban community that I am a part of. A nod to Candy Chang.

    I really enjoyed looking at this article. My favorite picture is of the woman with her hair separated to reveal “It’s so good to be here”. She looks so content :)
