Marilyn Monroe by Michael Kalish

Sex goddess, actress and over-used art icon Marilyn Monroe was born on June 1, 1926.  I love seeing her immortalized in art because pretty much every image of her is iconic, but please artists – can you find another muse?!  Her candle burned out long before her legend ever did… we get it!

Also born today – singer Alanis Morissette, actor Morgan Freeman and singer Pat Boone.

Marilyn Monroe by Michael Kalish now showing at the Opera Gallery in New York through May 31, 2010.

Artists Logan Hicks, Anthony Lister and Michael Kalish are showing recent works at the Opera Gallery in New York and all three artists have really great stuff.  American artist Michael Kalish has become infamous for using pieces of license plates in his amazing works and some of his pieces live in the collections of people from Nancy Regan to Kid Rock!  I was really taken with these unique works of art and I highly recommend you pay a visit to see this exhibit prior to its closing date on May 31, 2010.  The Opera Gallery is located at 115 Spring Street in New York.

See Kalish’s visions of Jimi Hendrix, Diana Ross, another Marilyn Monroe and Marlene Dietrich after the jump.
