6:30 p.m. Public Presentation & Reception at Coral Springs Museum of Art. David Best will make a presentation about his work and experiences, to be followed by a reception. This event will be open to the public. 2855 Coral Springs Drive.
January 30 – February 12, 2019
8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every Day David Best will work with Coral Springs and Parkland community members to build a 35-foot-tall temple, with no religious affiliation. The Temple will be a temporary structure and is not intended to serve as a memorial, but rather to be a place where the community can gather and reflect. By building the temple together, community members will produce an object of great beauty out of loss. Community members will work alongside David’s Temple Crew, seasoned volunteers who have worked with him on past projects. Construction of the temple will take place from January 30 to February 12, 2019.
In past work with parents, students and first-responders, David has found that the process and resulting temple help to rebuild hope. Once constructed, it will be open to the public from 7 am to dusk every day until May, when it will be burned in a ceremonial fire.
If you are interested in working with David and his crew, please come by in the afternoons and on weekends. Students 12 and older are welcome to build, as well.
