The 26-foot-tall “Forever Marilyn” by sculptor Seward Johnson was shipped in pieces from Palm Springs, Calif., to the Grounds for Sculpture, where it will go on view starting May 4.

The 17-ton stainless steel-and-aluminum sculpture depicts Monroe in her memorable billowing skirt pose from the 1955 movie “The Seven Year Itch.”

Its display will be part of an exhibit honoring its sculptor. He is also the founder of the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, just outside the state capital of Trenton.

The exhibit will end Sept. 21.
