A super-sized selection of Sam Shaw’s photos depicting Marilyn in New York are now on display inside the 42nd Street-Bryant Park station on the B, D, F, M and 7 lines. The exhibit is part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Arts for Transit program, reports the Associated Press.
Umbrellas left behind in the subway (June 1976)
‘This Marilyn Monroe poster aims to remind passengers to take their umbrellas with them when they leave the train. The text in the top right corner — ‘Kaerazaru kasa’ (umbrella of no return) — is a play on ‘Kaerazaru Kawa,’ the Japanese title for River of No Return, the 1954 movie starring Monroe.’
