An artist from Sonoita has been selected to create a statue of the late Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater that will be kept at the U.S. Capitol.

Deborah Copenhaver Fellows will craft the statue of the five-term U.S. senator and 1964 presidential candidate that will be placed in the capitol’s National Statuary Hall.

The statue will be one of two statues representing notable historical figures from Arizona.

Goldwater will replace a statue of John Campbell Greenway.

Greenway was a decorated military veteran and a bigwig in the copper mining industry in the 20th century.

The Goldwater statue will be created with donated money.
