The “Temple of Time” is the first installation in “Inspiring Community Healing After Gun Violence: The Power of Art,” a public art project in development by the cities of Coral Springs and Parkland, Florida to help their communities heal.

The goal of the project was to create an object of great beauty out of great loss, “to serve as a space for those who are grieving to gather, reflect, and leave behind difficult feelings,” the organizers said. “The community will once again come together on May 19 for the Temple’s ceremonial burn, designed to release some of the pain left inside.”

Bloomberg Philanthropies awarded $1 million to the City of Coral Springs in partnership with the City of Parkland and Coral Springs Museum of Art as part of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge.
