Ever since the gigantic Marilyn Monroe sculpture came to downtown Palm Springs in May of this year, people have been flocking to her to be photographed in her iconic presence, shadowed by her 26ft height. The stunning work of art is by Seward Johnson and is part of his ICONS REVISTED series. Mammoth Marilyn first debuted on July 15th, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois before traveling to sunny Palm Springs where she will stay until June 2013. As added bonus, P.S. Resorts, the organization that was a force behind bringing Marilyn to Palm Springs, is presenting "Forever Marilyn Outdoor Movie Series". The movies starring Marilyn of course, will be featured every Friday night through August 3rd. The movies range from last weeks "Gentleman Prefer Blonde's" to the August 3rd showing of "The Seven Year Itch", which was the movie where the famous photo of Marilyn was taken by Bernard of Hollywood, which ultimately inspired the sculpture. The movies will be shown right next to Marilyn on the corner of Tahquitz and Palm Canyon and the admission is Free! The films start at 8:30pm , so get there early to reserve your seat, and enjoy an evening with Marilyn.
