The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh just unveiled a huge exhibit of Marilyn Monroe photographs and related art, and a billboard campaign to advertise it. I caught this local opinion on the museum’s advertising tactics near our office last week.
“People had a habit of looking at me as if I were some kind of mirror instead of a person. They didn’t see me, they saw their own lewd thoughts, then they white-masked themselves by calling me the lewd one.”
– Marilyn Monroe as quoted in On Being Blonde, by Paula Munier
