The 26-foot-tall “Forever Marilyn” created by 84-year-old sculptor Seward Johnson went on display Sunday at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, a 24-acre park just outside the state capital of Trenton. The exhibit will remain open to the public through Sept. 21.

The exhibit features more than 160 works.

Besides the 17-ton stainless steel-and-aluminum sculpture that depicts Monroe in her memorable billowing skirt pose from the 1955 movie “The Seven Year Itch,” the exhibit also features a 25-foot-tall Abe Lincoln explaining the Gettysburg Address to a suburban guy in a white cable-knit sweater.
