The Marilyn Monroe statue has arrived at its new home - Palm Springs.

"Forever Marilyn" got to California after a week-long trip on a truck from Chicago. She saw bitter cold temperatures while she stood in Pioneer Plaza on Michigan Avenue.

Crews who were assembling her Monday dealt with temperatures that reached 106 degrees. Marilyn probably didn't mind becaus, as one of her movies notes, some like it hot.
