Kidnapped heiress Patricia (Patty) Hearst was arrested for her part in a bank robbery committed by her captors The Symbionese Liberation Army. Although she served 22 months prison time after conviction, the coercive circumstances led to the commutation of her sentence by President Jimmy Carter in 1979, and a full pardon by President Bill Clinton in 2001.

Patty Hearst - San Mateo CA 1975 "bank robbery and weapons charges" (7 years prison sentence, commuted by President Jimmy Carter)

Hang your favourite "criminal"... on your wall. Our fascination with retro pop culture rebels led us to create this collectible series of glittery art plaques featuring famous faces under arrest. 

  • Hangs flush on wall
  • Collectible series
  • Looks great in a grouping
  • Sealed glitter sides, white back
  • 5x7” size is easy to fit in spall spaces

The Glamourizing Crime series is drawn from publicly available mug shots from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s (and one 1938 outlier). We like the “classic” film-grain style of these pre-digital images, and focus our attention on largely non-violent offences with interesting stories behind them. “No beaters, no killers!” 

Each hand-made plaque is carefully layered and individually embellished with glitter or Swarovski crystal accents over a glossy, archival-print-quality surface. Sides are sealed high-quality silver glitter, back is plain white with slot hanger. 

A label on back outlines the details for each subject's arrest incident: city, year, charge(s), convictions/penalties/dismissals. A fun conversation piece!

Measures approx. 7 x 5 x 0.75"
