The "Happy Wall" is coming to CocoWalk

The Happy Wall, an interactive public art installation that encourages people to pick up a piece of chalk and answer the question, “What makes YOU happy?” is coming to Coconut Grove this holiday season. The massive chalkboard structure is being unveiled November 29 at Cocowalk, and everyone is invited to participate during its 35 day run. 

The Happy Wall will offer plenty of surface area and lots of free chalk for passers-by, visitors and locals alike to tell the world what brings them joy. The wall will also feature programming including live art, music and contests. The wall’s creation was inspired by writer and Happiness Advocate Hannah Sentenac’s journey out of depression and anxiety and into a happier, healthier life. 

The Happy Wall is designed to spark a bigger conversation about happiness and the power of positive psychology, in addition to helping focus people's attention on their many blessings. 

“I’m totally floored to bring this installation to life, and with such incredible partners,” Sentenac says. “It’s so important to take stock of all the amazing blessings in our lives, and The Happy Wall is a chance to share that positive energy with the world!” 

To kick off The Happy Wall’s installation week, Sentenac will be giving an inspired talk on the science of happiness, ditching depression and living a more joyful life at the Bookstore in the Grove on Tuesday, November 25 at 7 pm. 

The wall was designed and built by the PV Engineering Team out of Osprey, Florida. Even those who can’t visit The Happy Wall are encouraged to participate by telling the world what makes them happy via social media. People are asked to post to Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook using the hashtags #whatmakesmehappy and #TheHappyWall.
