In late 2018, Bloomberg Philanthropies selected the cities of Parkland and Coral Springs, as a winner of its Public Art Challenge.
The project brought the community together in collective healing and reflection following the school shooting that took 17 lives and forever changed so many at Marjory Stoneman Douglas.
The first of five public art pieces included the Temple of Time, by artist David Best which opened to thousands of visitors on February 14, 2019. The second, created by artists, Steven and William Ladd was a collaborative work called “Growth & Strength.” The third installation was The Yellow Walk — a 26-hour long performance.
