Synopsis

Transcendental Train Yard is a collection of color serigraphs accompanied by bilingual poems, in Spanish and English, inspired by the artwork. Transcendental Train Yard provides the reader a glimpse of the role the railroad and the carpas (itinerant vaudeville troupes) played in the Mexican American community. Artist Marta Sanchez and poet Norma Elia Cantu collaboratively render images and words that poignantly reflect specific periods in that history.

Norma E. Cantu was born in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico and grew up in Laredo, Texas, USA. Her novel Canicula: Snapshots of a Girlhood en la Frontera received the Aztlan Prize in 1996. Other projects include co-edited and edited work such as Moctezuma's Table: Rolando Briseno's Chicano and Mexicano Tablescapes, and Chicana Traditions: Continuity and Change.Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Chicana painter Marta Sanchez is deeply inspired by traditional Mexican folk art expressions.
