As the City of Sarasota prepares for construction to start on its U.S. 41-Gulfstream Avenue roundabout project—it's currently scheduled to begin in early 2021—we're going to have kiss downtown's popular, controversial Unconditional Surrender statue goodbye to accommodate construction. Whether it will return is up in the air, but we want your photos before we say farewell—at least for a while.
Send us your best photos of the statue—selfies encouraged!—with your name, the names of the people in the photo, and information about why you wanted to take a picture. Was is a special occasion? A whim? We'll share our favorites online and in a feature in our November-December issue.
