The 40,000lb sculpture of famous actress Marilyn Monroe, which has been standing in Pioneer Court in downtown Chicago since last July, will be leaving on Monday.

Some people have complained about her presence, saying it isn’t appropriate, but she was such a great American icon and, like her or not, the statue itself is a splendid likeness. And apparently many people would agree since it’s been a major tourist attraction ever since it arrived.

I’m not sure where it’s going next but if it’s in your neck of the woods I would suggest taking a look.  Marilyn was always good for a picture or two!
