It's true, Chicago. The top half of the "mysterious" 26-foot sculpture on Michigan Avenue was unveiled Friday to be Marilyn Monroe.
Friday morning's unveiling of New Jersey-based artist Seward Johnson's new sculpture confirmed suspicions.
Marilyn will strike her closed-eye, classic pose until spring 2012, at which time the artist will put up a new statue.
What a nice salute for this icon of American beauty!
