COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An artist has been chosen for the planned Holocaust memorial on the Ohio Statehouse grounds.

The selection committee met with three artists Monday and chose Daniel Libeskind (LEE'-bih-skihnd) of New York.

A spokeswoman says he proposed a limestone path toward two upright panels of brushed steel positioned at an angle. The edges nearest each other would have cutouts so that visitors gazing through the gap would see the outline of a six-pointed star. A graduated wall along the path would provide seating. The wall and panels would be inscribed with inspirational and educational text.

The choice must be approved by a site committee and the board that maintains the Statehouse.

The privately funded, $2 million project is expected to be the first Holocaust memorial at any statehouse in the nation.
