The sculpture "Unconditional Surrender," modeled after the iconic photograph from the end of World War II, will remain on the San Diego waterfront through the end of May, Port of San Diego officials announced Friday.
The 30-foot, 6,000-pound sculpture had been slated to depart San Diego by the end of February. But a deal has been reached between the port and the Santa Monica-based Sculpture Foundation, the sculpture's owner, to leave it in place for at least three more months.
The sculpture has become a tourist favorite since it arrived in 2007, with many a picture taken of tourist couples smooching with the sculpture in the background. The sculpture is near the carrier museum Midway.
Sculpture supporters flocked to a Port Commission meeting two weeks ago to urge the commissioners to extend the loan with the sculpture foundation.
