On the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death, her iconic image is alive and thriving in the hot Southern California desert! I created a quick video of the Marilyn Monroe statue that is currently erected in Downtown Palm Springs, CA and is quite the tourist attraction. Tourists cue up at all hours of the day and night to have their photos taken with Marilyn. The statue is expected to stay in the Palm Springs desert for one year and then travel to Tokyo. I gather Palm Springs City Officials are trying to secure the statue permanently after it finishes its run in Japan, given the excellent reception it has received.
