Artist David Best, famous for his ephemeral wooden structures built around the world, is currently constructing a ‘Temple of healing’ to commemorate the 17 victims of the Parkland shooting one year ago today. The Temple will be covered in words and expressions of healing by the community, and then it will be set ablaze. Screen Shot 2019-02-11 at 12.58.43 PM.png

Best’s project was funded by The Coral Springs Museum of Art, which started an art therapy program to help support those in in need of healing following the massacre at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School.
