l    A massive statue of Marilyn Monroe that has turned heads for two years in Palm Springs is heading east. The 26-foot-tall, 34,000-pound work-of-art will be transported from California to Hamilton, New Jersey in April, where it will be part of an exhibit honoring its designer, Seward Johnson. A going-away party is planned for March 27th and the event is open to the public. Carol Channing is expected to attend.

   With much fanfare, the immense creation arrived in the desert resort city in 2012. The sculpture depicts the movie star pushing down her billowing skirt in her very memorable scene in The Seven Year Itch. Palm Springs officials say they eventually hope to lure Monroe back.

   Forever Marilyn, on loan from the Sculpture Foundation, was previously in Chicago.
