INDIANAPOLIS - Marsh Supermarkets, Inc. will partner with CMG Worldwide for a special two-day Marilyn Monroe exhibit Dec. 18 and 19 at the CMG Legends Museum. The public exhibit will feature the world's largest collection of never-before-seen Marilyn Monroe artifacts ever assembled -- thousands of intimate pieces and personal property of the woman many believe was the most glamorous icon of the 20th century.
Displays will be open from noon to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday the 18th, and from noon to 6:00 p.m. the following day. All proceeds from the exhibit will benefit Indianapolis-area charities.
"We join in sponsorship of this event in part to support a neighbor," said Don E. Marsh, chairman and c.e.o. of Marsh Supermarkets. CMG's offices are located near Marsh's corporate headquarters.
A small sampling of what museum visitors will see: the blonde wig Marilyn wore in "Some Like It Hot"; a diamond engagement bracelet; Marilyn's monogrammed red luggage; the hat, gloves, purse, and shoes Marilyn wore when she married Joe DiMaggio in 1954; and the famous teddy bear on which she put a special string of pearls.
