Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival


The free San Francisco Center for the Book’s 14th Annual Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival is Sunday, September 17, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
The Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival includes public printmaking and book arts extravaganza that includes free hands-on printmaking and book arts activities, demonstrations, art gallery and studio tours, and more.
Steamroller Printing: relief printing — a process where a protruding surface is inked and brought into contact with paper — using a steamroller on the road surface of Rhode Island Street as a humongous makeshift printing press.
The resulting “Featured Artists Roadworks” prints are then sold for $500 (3’x3′) and $250 (18″x18″) and Roadworks “Roadworks ‘Personal Prints’ Artists'” prints are sold for $40 each.
