We have just installed a new Lightbox Exhibition presenting the one…the only… (drum roll please) Marilyn Monroe! Placed in two locations on 42nd Street, the yearlong exhibition features the work of photographer and filmmaker Sam Shaw, known for the famous image of Marilyn in her white dress standing above the Lexington Avenue subway grate. Along with this iconic image, the Lightbox depicts rarely seen images from a 1957 day in Manhattan, in which the two spent wandering the town, allowing Shaw to capture an unguarded and playful Marilyn. Made possible by Duggal Visual Solutions, and the Sam Shaw Archives, the fascinating photographs from that day can now be seen in the 42nd St-Bryant Park on the B, D, F, M station mezzanine. In addition, a super-sized version of the iconic subway grate photograph is on view at 42nd Street and Broadway, just outside the entrance to the Times Square subway complex.
