Coral Springs, FL – Steven and William Ladd, two artists and brothers, who developed a public art engagement program, Scrollathon, will speak about their large-scale, collaborative public art project. The Ladds will be working with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (MSD) and community organizations during a two-week period, with the goal of providing opportunities and outlets for healing and social cohesion.

Overall, Coral Springs will receive $1 million from the foundation. The project seeks to bring the community together in collective healing and reflection following the MSD shooting in February of 2018.
