They say it’s bad luck to walk underneath a ladder, especially on Friday the 13th. But what about walking underneath the skirt of Marilyn Monroe? I’m thinking, if anything, that can only bring good luck, right?
This 26-foot-tall sculpture was created by artist Seward Johnson, and shows Monroe in the same stance as she appeared in “The Seven Year Itch”. It’s location on Michigan Avenue makes Chicago’s Magnificent Mile even more magnificent!
While the editors at VirtualTourist.com ranked this as one of the “Worst Pieces of Public Art in the World”, others think it’s fabulous. I guess you just have to check it out for yourself.
And, as Marilyn would say: “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
