Video: Look Up Marilyn's Dress; OooohhLaLa!
A New Jersey artist who is famous for his real life sculptures has created a giant Marilyn Monroe that now graces the magnificent mile in Chicago.
Chicagoans are not quite sure what to make of the massive public work of art which will be on display through next spring.
Maryilyn is depicted in the iconic pose (with that famous plunging neckline/pleated bottom dress) from the movie The Seven Year Itch. The J. Seward Johnson sculpture is attracting its share of gawkers -- including many tourists and men who enjoy having their photos taken between MM's legas, looking straight up.
Marilyn is 26 feet high so (just as she was in life) she's hard to miss.
