Day 353: Get under Marilyn Monroe’s dress
August 21, 2011 § Leave a comment
The sculpture must be about three stories tall, and Marilyn is in the pose made famous by her role in “The Seven Year Itch.” I guess she’s going to hang out there on on the plaza outside of the Tribune Tower through next spring, though I don’t quite understand why she is being featured. She’s not exactly dressed for winter. A swarm of tourists milled around her though, snapping pictures up her dress. I’m not entirely sure if the sculpture is child appropriate, but her billowing dress could definitely offer shelter during a rain storm.
