Wisdom and Love from
the Temple of Tranquility
Boulder, Colorado, October 14 – November 4, 2023
The Temple of Tranquility was built in Harlow Platts Community Park in Boulder, Colorado. This art project was a community driven response to the collective traumas and grief experienced throughout our community following the tragic events and aftermath of March, 22 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic, the Marshall Fire, and associated challenges of the last several years.
In compliance with our permit from the City of Boulder, the Temple was removed on November 5, 2023. As part of our mission to the Boulder community, we also held a series of participatory events to help foster community healing, personal expression, and new beginnings. The Temple was a non-denominational space for contemplation and reverence.
