I watched a segment on the photoshop TV episode. They were discussing this very problem. They had an entertainment lawyer on to talk about the photographers rights and the subjects rights.
I would suggest that you make the effort to contact your District Attorney's office or State's office to be sure.
I think that being it was a public display.... but who knows anymore in our country!
The issue concerns private torts of invasion of privacy and not a crime or an action that a governemnt brings so a state's attorney's office is not an agency that will be helpful.
There are four invasion of privacy torts, the most common being misappropriation which is using someone's likeness in promotion/advertising/endorsements with out their permission.
