STATUE OF MARILYN MONROE GOES ON SHOW

 

Marilyn-Monroe-Statue-Unveiled-in-Chicago

An 8m-tall statue depicting screen icon Marilyn Monroe in her most famous stance has been erected in the windy US city of Chicago.

The Michigan Avenue masterpiece captures a historic scene from 1955 film The Seven Year Itch, in which the screen siren stands over a subway grate, with her white dress blowing up and exposing her legs.

The work is by New Jersey-based artist Seward Johnson, who began assembling the statue on a Monday night in order to have it standing by the weekend.

It will remain in the plaza until mid-next year.
