The return of the attention-garnering “Unconditional Surrender” sculpture back to its permanent post will be delayed by several weeks.
The 26-foot tall, aluminum sculpture was slated to return to the bayfront in November.
According to a statement from Seward Johnson’s Sculpture Foundation, “we are currently looking at a reinstallation date during the first two weeks of December.”
The larger-than-life sculpture created by Johnson was removed in April after a woman driving a four-door white Mercedes Benz smashed into the base of the statue, causing enough damage to the structure to force it to come down. It was shipped to Johnson Atelier, a New Jersey studio that fabricates and installs art sculptures.
Over the past few months the repair was one of the main projects at Johnson Atelier, and it was previously expected to be brought back to Sarasota sometime this month and reinstalled during a “Welcome Home” ceremony.
