Sarasota launches survey asking where residents would like the city to move the ‘Unconditional Surrender’ statue
City of Sarasota
We’re seeking additional public input about the relocation of Unconditional Surrender. The 25-foot-tall statue created by Seward Johnson is in the construction path of the new roundabout at US 41 and Gulfstream Ave. and must be relocated soon to allow the Florida Department of Transportation to begin site work.
Another large sculpture, Complexus (below left), currently on display near Gulfstream Ave. and US 41, also must be moved and tentatively will be relocated to the new Sarasota Art Museum on the grounds of the former Sarasota High School along US 41.
