Hamilton might sculpt memorial to Lincoln (KY)





He's sculpted Louisville's 8-foot-tall statue of York, the slave who assisted the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and designed the acclaimed Spirit of Freedom memorial in Washington that honors the Civil War's black soldiers.

Now Louisville's Ed Hamilton is being courted for another artistic challenge: creating a $2 million memorial to Abraham Lincoln at Waterfront Park in time for the Great Emancipator's 200th birthday in 2009.
