After about eight months of organizing on behalf of Herman and Albert, as a graduate studentat Stanford University, Miss Sumell was given an assignment which required her to speak with the professor of choice about spatial relationships and indulgent dream homes. Struggling to balance the futility of this assignment with the reality of Herman’s condition, (with the support of both Herman’s lawyer and his personal advocate), she asked Herman Wallace a very simple question: "What kind of a house doesa man who has lived in a six-foot-by-nine-foot cell for over 30 years dream of?" The answer to this question resulted in an extraordinary and ongoing journey. Since 2003, through extensive letter writing, phone calls, and dozens of visits to the prison, Jackie has been translating Herman’s imagination.She and Herman's work is a primary exhibit in Prospect.1 New Orleans [P.1], the largest biennial of international contemporary art ever organized in the United States. No doubt that Sumell's work has given Wallace even more hope for his future. You can help see that the house is built.
