GRATITUDE

Now into its 11th year, Herman’s House has transformed from an exchange between a prisoner and an artist, into an international art exhibition, a book, a documentary film and now it is in the fundraising stages to build. We are building a legacy, a monument, a community center, but perhaps most importantly:  we are building a movement. We are, you-us-and-them- all together, beyond walls, beyond perceived boundaries and beyond imagined limits. One of the most beautiful off-shoots of this project is the growing community of human-doings who have come together to end torture & celebrate the power of the imagination. Very simply put- we could never do this with out you & we are SO grateful.
