“Rather Less Than Iconic”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

It's there. And you know what it looks like. The idea is not fresh. After saying to yourself that it is even larger than you imagined, you are not moved, inspired, humored, or even interested.

“Who Cares?”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

This is a complete waste of money and the time both of the artist and the viewers in my opinion.

“Cool Statue”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

It was so cool to check this out. Yes it was crowded, but if you wait a little bit you'll be able to get in there for a picture. If you're a fan of Marillyn, you don't want to miss this.

“My Week with Marilyn..”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

My friends and I were wandering about Chicago and saw Marilyn across the street. Of course we needed a photo with her! I definitely love the way the sculpture is wearing underpants and not being a prude about it. She made granny panties look sexy.

“This is art???”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Commercial in every aspect. Certainly not "art". But then maybe it isn't supposed to be!
