During May, Peacock will travel throughout the 497,330-acre Monument, capturing images through her impressions on canvas as part of the tenth anniversary of the Monument designation. Jane Peacock spoke with KRWG’s Scott Brocato from her cabin in Dripping Springs about the Artist in Residency Program and what she’ll be doing.

Scott Brocato has been an award-winning radio veteran for over 35 years. He has lived and worked in Las Cruces since 2016, and you can hear him regularly during "All Things Considered" from 4 pm-7 pm on weekdays. Off the air, he is also a local actor and musician, and you can catch him rocking the bass with his band Flat Blak around Las Cruces and El Paso.
