Marilyn Monroe Bids Adieu to the Palm Springs Valley

If you haven’t yet paid homage at the very large sandaled feet of the statue of Marilyn Monroe that has been gracing Downtown Palm Springs at Palm Canyon Drive and Tahquitz Canyon Way since May of 2012, you better put a plan into gear pronto because the 26-foot-tall, 34,000-pound replica of the Hollywood glamor goddess—whose official title is “Forever Marilyn”—is leaving town (for good?) on April 2, 2014.
