Before sunrise on Oct. 11, my life was forced to a standstill when my mom called me in a panic to tell me that my little brother, 19-year-old Demitri Crockett, had been shot and killed by a still-unidentified assailant the evening before.
The last thing that I said before he (went home) was, “If you get scared, just walk up the hill and knock on my door and I’ll protect you.”
It was wonderful working with the city of Colorado Springs for the new Storm Drain Art Project in collaboration with the Brewshed Alliance in celebration of Arts Month!
We had a blast installing these public art pieces in this city I so love! I was honored to be chosen by the city to help raise awareness to the importance of keeping our precious waters clean for sustaining all our diverse lifeforms great and small!
