Study for Tile Mural, Betty Heron, 60"x60", oil on canvas, 2024

Six tile mural portraits of life-sentenced Sharon Wiggiins, Rose Dinkins, Avis Lee, Paulette Carrington, Betty Heron and an additional, more recent portrait of Cyd Berger are being mounted and installed in the Pardon Garden next to the existing Cyd Berger mural. Updated images will be available as installations develop. 

Paulette Carrington will be here with me at the Pardon Garden during events. She endured over 40 years in prison, sentenced to life without parole as a child. She was not pardoned by the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons. She was released because of a United States Supreme Court ruling on June 25, 2012. The landmark case Miller v. Alabama determined that it is unconstitutional to impose a life-without-parole sentence on a child under age 18.

Two 48"x36" mural portraits of Betty Heron and Cyd Berger will stand on either side of the 60"x48" mural portrait of Cyd Berger. Mural portraits of Sharon Wiggins, Rose Dinkins, Avis Lee and Paulette Carrington will be placed on adjacent walls.
