Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
-- Maya Angelou
Barrier Free is a socially engaged art installation designed by artist Yancy Villa-Calvo for Latino Memphis about the impact of barriers. Throughout history, humans have built walls to protect, define and divide. Some walls are physical, others are intangible barriers. Regardless of their composition, barriers keep people from being able to reach their goals or desired destination.
