A statue of Marilyn Monroe is set to welcome visitors of Palm Springs. The sculpture of the iconic actress will stand at the corner of Tahquitz Canyon Way and Palm Canyon Dr. in the Downtown area. The creation of artist Seward Johnson, Forever Marilyn is grand at 26-feet tall. It was previously in Chicago, and took about a week and $40,000 to transport.
The life-like figure depicts the blonde in her famous pose from The Seven Year Itch. The famous scene of Marilyn pushing down her skirt as she poses on an air duct will come to life for the Southern California desert community. And, tourists are getting a jump on the scenic area by taking plenty of photographs. Most of the statue is already erected.
Still being assembled, the official ribbon cutting is set for May 24th. There is little doubt, Palm Springs prefers Marilyn…
With Monroe as the face at this year's Festival Du Cannes, the actress remains vital in 2012.
