The San Francisco Center for the Book’s 19th annual Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival is back for another all-day public printmaking and book arts event. Activities include hands-on printmaking and book arts activities, demonstrations, retail vendors, and live printing on Rhode Island Street.
The Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival celebrates the art of print in a big way: by printing linocuts using a 7-ton 1924 Buffalo Springfield steamroller with a team of featured artists, printers and steamroller operators who create large-scale Classic prints and smaller-scale Personal prints throughout the day.
The limited edition prints are literally “print-on-demand” and are available only during the daylong event. Each print purchased during SFCB’s Roadworks event helps raise funds that directly benefit San Francisco Center for the Book.
This year’s Roadworks features the work of 40+ Personal Print artists and Classic Print artists John Kulikoff, Kate Laster, Melissa Mohammadi, Rik Olson, and Eric Rewitzer. SFCB instructors will be offering letterpress, book arts, and printmaking demonstrations alongside neighborhood favorites Arch Art Supplies and The Aesthetic Union.
