Starting At The Bottom With Marilyn Monroe…

Starting At The Bottom With Marilyn Monroe...

I guess if you have to disassemble a 26 foot tall stainless steel and aluminum Marilyn Monroe, you best start at the bottom. The process began today after almost two years on display here in Palm Springs. A truly whimsical sculpture, it is one of the most famous images of Marilyn Monroe, from 1955 movie “The Seven Year Itch”. It will be on the way tomorrow to New Jersey for a showing of the works of the artist, Seward Johnson. Hopefully afterwards to return to Palm Springs as the permanent home of “Forever Marilyn”.
