“Cheeky!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

This is very, very cool, especially if you don't know the sculpture is there. One minute you're crossing the Michigan Avenue bridge, and the next you look up and see this enormous sweetheart of a Marilyn Monroe with shoes big enough to sleep in, just loving the world. Makes ya smile! Try taking a photo from across the street at the Wrigley building. You can get creative with it.

“Really?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

I cry a little inside when I see this every day and all the people fawning over it. Why not just make a giant cute puppy statue? It would have about as much artistic merit.
