See Daisy Bates and Johnny Cash!

The new statues of civil rights leader Daisy Bates, below, and singer Johnny Cash are currently on display at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock this week.

Artist Benjamin Victor works on his sculpture of Daisy Bates.

The statues are the work of sculptor Benjamin Victor and at  the Windgate Center of Art and Design at UALR.

The sculptures will be open to the public from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.
