The "Marilyn on the Road" adventure has begun!
Monday, the 25 foot tall sculpture Forever Marilyn was deinstalled at the Marilyn Park in Palm Springs, with dramatic images of flying head, skirt and legs! A large crowd, including the Mayor, gathered to take their last photos and wish her bon voyage.
On Tuesday, the crane loaded the four parts of the spectacular sculpture by Seward Johnson onto two long flat bed trucks. The day drew more photo-taking as Palm Springs tourists and residents were able to sidle up close to Marilyn's perfect face. Mid-afternoon the trucks took their wide turns out of the park and headed Eastward!
First stop: Phoenix, Arizona. See the map for her next locations. Events are being planned along the route. If there is ample interest, we will arrange a stop at your city!
The trip will take 6 to 7 days and arrive in Hamilton, New Jersey for Marilyn's installation at Grounds For Sculpture for the artist's lifetime retrospective exhibition (May - September). Join us!
