Forever Marilyn

While I was bemoaning the sad state of British "art" yesterday - at least as promoted by the Brit. Anti-art Establishment -, Seward Johnson's 26-foot-tall sculpture of Marilyn Monroe was being unveiled on Michigan Avenue, Chicago, nicknamed the Windy City. Painted in realistic tones, Forever Marilyn (2011) recreates that iconic scene in The Seven Year Itch when Marilyn's dress is blown upward by the breeze from a subway grate.
