Border Dynamics

"Border Dynamics" is a sculpture by Mexican artists Guadalupe Serrano and Alberto Morackis installed near the southeast corner of the Harvill Building on the University of Arizona campus. It has four tall figures pushing against opposite sides of a wall. The sculpture is about 14 feet tall. Its a great sculpture to view and reflect on the barriers that separate nations, people, relationships, beliefs. I had seen pictures of it in the news when it first came out years ago, but saw it today in person on my way to the UofA art museum.

East / West Berlin wall: down. U.S. / Cuba "wall": still up. U.S. / Mexico wall: currently under construction. Which represents progress?
