The Temple, designed by internationally acclaimed artist, David Best, and built with members of the community,
opens for reflection.

Coral Springs, FL – The Temple of Time, the first of five public art installations in Coral Springs and Parkland as part of a winning series, “Inspiring Community Healing After Gun Violence: The Power of Art,” officially opens for reflection Thursday, February 14, 2019.

The Temple of Time, a 35-foot, ornate, wooden structure, was constructed daily since January 31, with the help of students, teachers and community members. The Temple is open to the public from dawn to dusk, through Spring.

In 2018, Bloomberg Philanthropies selected City of Coral Springs, in partnership with the City of Parkland, as a winner of its Public Art Challenge. Coral Springs received $1 million from the foundation. The projects seek to bring the community together in collective healing and reflection following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (MSD) shooting in February of 2018.
