Iconic to Ironic: Fashioning California Identity, Mar. 15, 2003 to Sept. 21, 2003

Tribune caption on the back, June 19, 1989, "In the movie, 'a Streetcar Named Desire,' Marlon Brando (above, with Kim Hunter) forever changed the way Americans viewed the humble t-shirt. Since then, the T has become a walking billboard of sorts, as demonstrated by the one, far left, with the peace sign in Grateful Dead motif, or the one worn by late activist Abbie Hoffman, left." Photo shows the back of a man wearing a tie-dyed t-shirt with a large peace symbol on the back over a sweatshirt and jeans. Found in Tribune envelope marked "Fashion, t-shirt."
