Unconditional Surrender installed as part of Sculpture Along The Way

One of the most famous photographs ever published by Life Magazine, “V”J day in Times Square” was shot in Times Square on August 14, 1945 by Alfred Eisenstaedt who was in the square taking candid’s when he spotted a sailor “running along the street grabbing any and every girl in sight.   Then suddenly he saw something white being grabbed.  Eisenstaedt turned around and clicked the moment the sailor kissed the nurse. -from Sarasota Travel Blog, March 28, 2009

On Monday, April 26, 2010 the Johnson Atelier began the installation of Seward Johnson’s sculpture Unconditional Surrender as part of The Sculpture Foundation’s, Sculpture Along The Way program.   Sculpture Along The Way is the “breadcrumb trail” from Sloan Avenue to Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ.

Here are some pictures of an earlier version of Unconditional Surrender unassembled behind the Seward Johnson Center for the Arts at Grounds For Sculpture (there is also a version of the sculpture at the Port of San Diego, CA and another in Sarasota, FL.)
