If alive, Marilyn would be 87 years old and her legendary image still lives on as superstar and ultimate icon of glamour and beauty. August marks the 51st Anniversary of her passing. The Hollywood Museum, in the Historic Max Factor Building, is located at 1660 N. Highland Ave. in the heart of Hollywood.
The scope of the exhibition encompasses Marilyn's costumes, jewelry, furs and accessories from her films; publicity gowns and personal wardrobe; her 1961 Fleetwood Cadillac limousine; original Marilyn Monroe artwork, photographs and documents from her private files; and many of Marilyn's personally owned artifacts.
"Fans of all ages flock to Hollywood from around the world each year to honor Marilyn's life and memory," says Museum Founder and President Donelle Dadigan. "The Hollywood Museum is proud to host this definitive and meaningful Marilyn retrospective which includes never-before-seen items."
"This Museum is considered the perfect home for this exhibit since it is actually here where the legendary Max Factor originally designed Marilyn's on-screen hair and coloring," says Dadigan. "When you walk into the 'FOR BLONDES ONLY ROOM,' you feel Marilyn Monroe's presence."
" Marilyn Monroe : The Exhibit" displays the million-dollar dress Marilyn wore on her honeymoon with Joe DiMaggio , one of the highlights of The Hollywood Museum's permanent collection.
