Re: “After teen suicides, local school uses art to heal

Thank you Indy and Griffin for this well written and relevant article. Discovery Canyon Campus Community of students ,teachers,staff and parents make up a unique school. Like so many other schools, people come and go without interacting very much each day due to the many activities, academic demands, and personal focus. The continual stream of fish swimming together is a wonderfullly quiet, non-demanding reminder that we are truly not alone, even if we look different, see life or politics differently. I saw one of the fish on the floor the other day. It had fallen of the current and as I put "him" back up into the current I thought to myself that not one should be "lost" . Simple and very Real

Re: “Falling Starrs

There is so much that is heart breaking about this saga. Starr Kempf was so gifted and making routine pilgrimages to his sculptures is one of the highlights of my life (and pretty much what kept me going the few years I was stranded in that town). I have never seen anything like his work. His vision was unique, oddly functional, and just incredible to see in person. I sadly read years later that he had killed himself, which was a tragedy for the area, his fans, and of course his poor family. But the deterioration of his daughter's mental health combined with her methods of increasing the publicity of his pieces by bringing public bus tours to a private community and provoking fights with neighbors absolutely ruined everything. I don't know what's worse---that they could be removed and shuffled around, exposing them to potential damage; OR to be purchased by a private owner and given a permanent home where the general public would be unable to see them at all. There is just no ending to this situation that isn't crushing. What an incredible loss, and not at all the eulogy his talent deserves.

Re: “Falling Starrs

These sculptures were/are amazing, and were in such a great setting, close to Seven Falls. I was living in Manitou when this was going on, and had the impression that Lottie was a bit off her rocker. I remember she tried to sue the news media for using her name in their articles. It is a shame that she brought such sadness into her mother's life in her golden years.

Re: “Falling Starrs

This is one of the saddest things I've seen in a long time....
Incredible talent....incredible sculptures....the world should be in awe....
Not watching them get taken away piece by piece....
Another historical iconic artist & his work
.....swept under the political rug...
Sad ...very sad...
