Description:

The House That Herman Built : The House That Herman Built  is a collaboration between artist Jackie Sumell and Herman Wallace, who has spent decades in solitary confinement at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. The on-going project includes models of the tiny cell where Wallace is held along with his letters about and drawings and models of his dream home.

Joe Walters: Joe Walters starts with observation of native plants then through a unique process he invented uses simple materials such as clay, wire mesh, sand and paint to create a rich, textured sculptures that have the appearance of metal.

Steven Vitiello, World Trade Center Recordings: Winds After Hurricane Floyd : As artist-in-residence at the World Trade Center in 1997, Stephen Vitiello captured the sound of wind whipping around the buildings and the structures’ response to create his World Trade Center Recordings: Winds After Hurricane Floyd.

Janet Biggs, A Step On the Sun!!: Janet Biggs’ video and sound piece A Step On the Sun!!  explores the lives of sulfur miners working at Indonesia volcano and Cao Guimaraes’ Limbo , shot in his native Brazil, juxtaposes still photography of places, faces and objects for non-narrative story telling.

Scott Ingram, Cinder blocks: Scott Ingram will install a stack of foam “cinder blocks” – real cinder blocks being one of the major building materials of the mid-20th century in the Academy courtyard. Visitors are invited to build their own structures with the blocks.
