SWITCHING STATUES
Ohio commission seeks artist to design Thomas Edison statue for US Capitol Statuary Hall

CINCINNATI


An Ohio commission is seeking an artist to design a statue of inventor Thomas Edison for the U.S. Capitol's National Statuary Hall.

The nonprofit Ohio Statuary Hall Commission is now accepting proposals from interested artists. The artist eventually selected must be approved by the state of Ohio, the Capitol architect and the Joint Committee on the Library of Congress.

Each state gets to place two statues of notable historic figures in the Capitol.

Edison would join U.S. President James Garfield as Ohio's representatives in Statuary Hall and replace the current statue of Governor William Allen.

Edison received more than one thousand patents, including ones for the phonograph and the first practical incandescent light bulb.

The commission is accepting artists' proposals until 4 p.m. on May 5.
