FEBRUARY 19 TO MAY 15 Almost 50 years after her death, Hollywood megastar Marilyn Monroe continues to fascinate. From meteoric rise to tragic demise, Monroe’s life played out like a classic movie script. The images she left behind, however, offer a much more complex story. On view at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Life as a Legend: Marilyn Monroe paints a captivating picture of the actress and her contradictions—vulnerable yet calculating, equal parts innocence and sexual desire, a woman of both integrity and artifice. More than 150 works—including images, such as John Vachon’s photograph Marilyn with Mountie, which reveal Monroe’s Canadian connection—shine the spotlight on this cultural icon.
