Op woensdag 14 januari 2015 was de onthulling van een kunstwerk van André Volten op het Surinameplein. Dit bijzonder kunstwerk was tot voor kort te zien op het Jaarbeursplein in Utrecht. Het is jaren de wens van omwonenden om het Surinameplein meer uitstraling te geven in de vorm van een kunstwerk. Het stadsdeel heeft samen met Actiegroep Mooi Surinameplein een plan uitgewerkt om de komende vier jaar tijdelijke kunstwerken te plaatsen. Bewoners uit de Postjesbuurt selecteren onder begeleiding van curator Cintha van Heeswijck van stichting ArtZuid ieder jaar een bestaand kunstwerk dat geëxposeerd wordt op de rotonde. Het kunstwerk van Volten blijft tot de zomer van 2016 op het Surinameplein staan.

Three monumental bronze sculptures by André Volten (1925-2002) are installed at the Surinameplein in Amsterdam. Jaarbeurs Utrecht was willing to lend these artworks that Volten made in 1980.
Foundation Art Zuid together with the City of Amsterdam made this possible. André Volten was one of Holland’s most important 20th century sculptors. Special is that he was born and bred in North Amsterdam. Amsterdam has a lot to thank him for: more that twenty of his sculptures decorate the city, including the locally famous ‘knakenpaal’ (money pole), across from the Nederlandse Bank.
