The Turbo Plan
In episode eleven Tim & Lance talk to former swindler Turbo Paul Hendry about his thoughts on the Gardner heist, and how the artwork can be recovered. Visit Turbo's blog: http://arthostage.blogspot.com/ In Empty Frames Tim Pilleri & Lance Reenstierna (Missing Maura Murray, Crawlspace) dig into the mystery of the greatest art heist of all time. The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts was robbed of thirteen pieces of artwork on March 18th, 1990\. The frames remain empty today, awaiting their return.
Please sign and share the Turbo Plan petition for an itemized price list for the stolen Gardner art. 28 years into our response to this terrible crime, we must consider modifying the approach we take as we attempt to restore what’s been astutely identified as “our heritage.” Through Change.org, you can make your voice heard and help to bring the art home.
