Paula Stoeke, Director of The Sculpture Foundation: Johnson has"created a series of sculptures that are inspired by well-known images [and] transformed these elements of popular culture and history to provoke questions in the viewer about the meanings of our icons, the passage of time and the impact societal changes have on the mythology of some of these beloved images."
Paul Zeller, President and CEO of Zeller Realty Group: “With Marilyn, we hope to rekindle an attitude and optimism from an era that this iconic figure represents – a time when we, as a nation and a people, were proud, productive, optimistic and self-assured, if a bit mischievous. We seek a return to American Exceptionalism, and trust Marilyn will propel our attitudes in the right direction,”
