Champions of Change

In this episode of Art Connection, the Utah legislature voted to send a statue of Dr. Martha Hughes Cannon to the National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol in 2018. The completed statue by Ben Hammond resides in the Utah State Capitol until its send-off in the Spring of 2023. Dr. Canon championed women's rights and she has been an inspiration to many women throughout the years. We meet Maya Mercer, member of Girl Scout Troop 914, to tell the story of how her troop lobbied the legislature to help send Martha Hughes Cannon's statue to Washington, DC.
