Community Post: 26-Foot Marilyn Monroe Sculpture Unveiled In Chicago

The newest tourist attraction in Chicago is a 26-foot tall statue of Marilyn Monroe. The sculpture was unveiled Friday morning on Michigan Avenue just north of the Chicago River. It shows Monroe during the iconic scene in "The Seven Year Itch" when a gust from a subway grate blows her skirt up. Viewers can see her lacy underwear. Artist J. Seward Johnson created the super-sized sculpture. It will be on display until next spring.

I have to say that, despite the controversy, I found this statue delightful! Every time I passed it on Michigan avenue it made me smile at the beautiful memory of Norma Jean. Controversial Urban Underwear: Marilyn Monroe Statue, Chicago DesignRulz.com
