What do you want to do before you die?
It is a question posed by chalkboard walls around the country and world, but Flagstaff will not be adding one.
The Beautification and Public Art Commission considered a beautification in action grant to create a chalkboard wall for people to share their aspirations, but public reaction to the idea was generally negative.
“I do not consider this public art,” Flagstaff Community Forum user Dennis Roberts wrote in response to the idea on the city’s website. “Based on the example shown it looks more like graffiti and is not in character with Flagstaff.”
The commission is no longer considering the installation as a project, city of Flagstaff spokeswoman Jessica Drum said.
