Coral Springs, FL – Kate Gilmore, artist and Guggenheim Fellow will be at the Coral Springs Museum of Art to meet with community members and media for a discussion about her work which is one of the five public art installations being presented in Coral Springs and Parkland as part of a series, “Inspiring Community Healing After Gun Violence: The Power of Art.” Gilmore will talk about her large-scale interactive public art installation and performance that will take place with community performers at the Art Walk in Coral Springs, November 8-10. This piece invites the community to gather and be together in a restorative and supportive environment.

In 2018, Bloomberg Philanthropies selected City of Coral Springs, in partnership with the City of Parkland, as a winner of its Public Art Challenge.
