A 26-foot tall statue of Marilyn Monroe, by artist J. Seward Johnson, is based on a scene from the movie "Seven Year Itch," and is on display on the Magnificent Mile in Chicago. "Forever Marilyn" will be leaving Chicago soon, most likely for San Diego, CA. As of May 7th, 2012... Gone, but not forgotten!

Of course, I << LIKE >> it.

I will try to make my best in order to vote (for this one and / or more), not so easy ...

More generally, you have a beautiful gallery.


I am very happy for your visit and your comments. Thank you very much for them.


See you soon… Best regards from Grasse, in France.

She's on her way, Marlene. Her leaving Chicago, made news here in Sydney. (Some Like it Hot, I never tire of!)

Cheers, David.

~Marlene~ on May 10, 2012

Yes, David... gone, but not forgotten! We are anxiously waiting for her replacement... stay tuned.

Cheers, Marlene

I have just seen Marilyn in two halves. ;-(

both halves looking good!

Who chased her out of town??

~Marlene~ on May 13, 2012

She actually had an extended run, Tomas, and is on her way to California. Her replacement has yet to be announced, but we all wait with baited breath!

Cheers, Marlene

Actually, as I am between engagments, I am available for modeling. It would be probably welcome savings for the city, as even twice my size, I still fit under the skirts of Marilyn!

~Marlene~ on May 14, 2012

I will be sure to inform the "public art" committee, Tomas... I'm sure they will be ecstatic! :-)

Have a great week!
