So now there’s a giant statue of Marilyn Monroe standing by Tribune Tower, on Michigan Ave:
Describing it, the Chicago Tribune writes:
Marilyn Monroe, as a 26-foot-tall statue in her famous subway-grate stance from “The Seven Year Itch” pose [sic]. Dubbed Forever Marilyn, the sculpture by New Jersey-based artist Seward Johnson will live in Pioneer Court through what will be a rather chilly winters for the bare-legged, exposed-panties icon. It’s scheduled to depart in the spring.
The Tribune gets it wrong, however.
