Unconditional Surrender goes up

“Unconditional Surrender” is back home.

Crews began working Tuesday morning to re-install the 25-foot-tall bronze sculpture on the bayfront.

Work on the sculpture is expected to be completed by Friday, Dec. 7. "Unconditional Surrender" was trucked down from New Jersey in two pieces.

The larger-than-life sculpture was removed in April, after a woman driving a four-door white Mercedes Benz accidentally 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.

Superstorm Sandy delayed the delivery of the sculpture, created by artist Seward Johnson, back to Sarasota.
