The T-Shirt Museum

Newest T-Shirt: Bob Dobbs Art

Bob Dobbs Art

The T-Shirt Museum was started to track the art and design of the T-shirt through the years. There is almost no one that the T-shirt, its designs, and its messages haven't touched. This museum is a shrine for that art and those messages.

The T-shirt went from an article of underwear to trendy outerwear after Clark Gable wore his T-shirt in the movie "It Happened One Night." This was taken further by Marlon Brando in "Street Car Named Desire."

No one knows who first printed on a T-Shirt, but it was popularized in the 1960's, when so many other things happened. The simple T-Shirt took on a life of its own, becoming a canvas for artists and a billboard for the messages of the time. Everything from "Peace" to Alka Seltzer was hawked on T-shirts.

There seems to be no slowing down the messages and art that can be applied to this cotton apparel. So stop and look back at some of the classics, like Tie-Dyed, Hard Rock Cafe, and others.

We encourage all to send in scans or photos of their favorite T-Shirts. We will put them on display for the world to see. Each month the staff will choose their favorite, and up to ten people will be given special T-shirt Museum T's that state, "I am hanging in the T-Shirt Museum - Work of Art." These cannot be purchased, only won.

Thanks for stopping by!
