As of March 4, 2022, Pitts had made 73 paintings.
"This is not about me as an artist," Pitts said. "I am very aware that the only reason I'm doing this is because other people have had a really horrific day, or they have lost their lives."
Pitts wants this project to be the start of a conversation of prevention, and to use his art as a launching point for a safe space to talk about the trauma and hurt mass shootings cause in the lives of everyone involved.
"There are enormous amounts of people that are affected by this, and I do not want this to ever be seen as anything except a recording of the of the data that's being presented and an opportunity to create a space where our conversation can start," he said.
If you would like to see more or follow along on the project, Pitts posts each piece to his Instagram account, @eewhiteart42

Pitts expects to unveil the finished product in Kalamazoo in July 2023.
