The San Francisco Center for the Book’s 16th Annual Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival is a day-long public printmaking and book arts extravaganza that includes free hands-on printmaking and book arts activities, demonstrations, 50 arts and crafts vendors and more.
During the Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival celebrate this facet of book arts history in the biggest, over-the-top, spectacular way: by printing linocuts using a 7-ton 1924 Buffalo Springfield steamroller — provided by Roots of Motive Power – combined with the road surface of Rhode Island Street as an enormous makeshift printing press.
A team of featured artists, printers and steamroller operators will create large-scale featured artist prints and smaller personal prints artists prints.
The Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival has become a popular tradition in the Do.Re.Mi (Dogpatch-Potrero-Hill-Mission) Arts District of San Francisco that attracts art, printmaking and book art enthusiasts of all ages, including adults and kids, from far and wide.
