Artists Ken Ketchum and Dawn Davies spearheaded an outdoor chalk board project on the Salt Spring Gallery side wall. The black board mimics a 40 foot long outdoor black board set up in Reno Nevada by the Blackrock Arts Group.
Chalk is supplied and passers-by are encouraged to jot down or draw their bucket list wishes under the heading "Before I die I want to...". The board has filled to over-flowing making for some delightful, even thought provoking reading and spawning side walk conversations and cell phone photos.
The board will be refreshed frequently and in the future the posed question will be changed. All the Gallery members invite you to participate! Black boards of this type are appearing in many communities, opening dialogues, minds and hearts.
