Martha Hughes Cannon was a suffragist, medical doctor, and the first female State Senator in the U.S. — and soon, she’ll stand as a symbol of Utah's pioneering spirit in the National Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C. Utah County-based sculptor Ben Hammond was tasked with creating a larger-than-life bronze work of Dr. Cannon, in collaboration with the Baer Bronze Fine Art Foundry in Springville.
