Forever Marilyn…

Standing nearly 3 stories high at 26 feet, the Marilyn statue in downtown Palm Springs is a sight to behold.  It/she is drawing quite a bit of attention and it was nearly impossible to get a picture without people posing in some fashion around the base.  The statue is striking in its location on a large grassy open space on a busy corner on Palm Canyon drive, with the mountain range soaring behind.  Here are a few interesting links providing more background on the Forever Marilyn statue, currently residing in Palm Springs.  It was so hot and humid, you can see that it appears even Marilyn (statue) is perspiring.
