Artist Mary DeWitt began working with a group of life-sentenced women in Pennsylvania's State Correctional Institution at Muncy in 1990. The women were all sentenced between 1969 and 1974. Ms. DeWitt has returned to this portrait series again and again, in formats including tile murals, large canvases, and reverse glass paintings, as seen in this installation. Each painting is accompanied by a recording of the woman's voice.

It originally aired in 2010 but i just heard it. And - the case involves someone who was sentenced to Life WITH the opportunity for Parole - unlike Pennsylvania.
