A Tom Hanks Tribute Show Highlighting the Actor’s ’80s and ’90s Best


An everyman who made it to the A-list, star Tom Hanks captures a nerdy charm, earnest heart, and an occasional quiet sexiness in his characters. Los Angeles pop culture purveyors Gallery 1988 have dedicated an entire exhibition to the actor, No Sad Stuff — inspired by his films between 1984 and 1994, Hanks’ golden years. Big, Splash, Turner and Hooch, The Burbs, A League of Their Own, and Forrest Gump make the cut. The group show is on view through June 20, but you can see a preview of the Hanks homage in our gallery.
