Rhode Island Street between 16th and 17th St. | Rhode Island St. & 16th St., San Francisco, CA
An all-day arts festival showcasing printmaking and the art of the book, they’re bringing in a three-ton construction steamroller to create large-scale linoleum carved block prints on the street.
In addition to the steamroller printing centerpiece, there will also be free tours of the Austin/Burch Gallery plus free letterpress, bookbinding, and other mini-workshops during the festival. The gallery-quality steamroller prints will be for sale at SFCB during a special preview hour prior to the event; limited quantities of the prints will be available at the event itself.
