Arkansas is poised to change its sculptures in the National Statuary Hall Collection. Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Thursday (Nov. 12) the two statues in the Hall, those of U.M. Rose and James P. Clarke, will be replaced with civil rights icon Daisy Gatson Bates and hall-of-fame musician Johnny Cash.
Fifteen people applied to design and cast Bates' statue, and Cash's statue received 16 applications, which were submitted to the secretary of state's office.
