From Cotton to Coal… The Last Train
Del algodón al carbón ... El último tren
San Francisco artist Mildred Howard sited her inSITE94 project in the baggage building of the Santa Fe Depot. Her installation consisted of two components, "Abode: Sanctuary for the Familia(r)/Hogar: el santuario para lo familia(r)" and "From Cotton to Coal ... the Last Train/Del algodón al carbón ... El último tren." As a continuation of her exploration of architectural forms and everyday materials that poetically call forth issues of cultural identity and memory, Howard chose to reinstall "Abode," first created for the San Jose Museum of Art. "Abode" and "From Cotton to Coal" reference Howard's own cultural history as an African-American woman --inSITE94
