Goldwater Statue Slated to be Unveiled

ATTENTION PRINT/RADIO/TV NEWS DIRECTORS

Secretary of State Ken Bennett will publically unveil an eight-foot tall bronze statue of Senator Barry Goldwater in a special ceremony at the state capitol on Monday at 9:30 a.m.  The sculpture will remain in the Capitol Museum in Phoenix for the next several months before being transported to the nation’s capital.

The process to add Senator Goldwater to Statuary Hall began in 2008 with state legislation sponsored by Senator Adam Driggs, and later approved by Congress. Senator Goldwater’s statue will join the sculpture of Father Eusebio Kino in representing Arizona and take the place of John Campbell Greenway, which has stood in Statuary Hall since 1930. 

Secretary Bennett, Michael Goldwater and the artist, Deborah Copenhaver-Fellows of Sonoita will speak.
