2015 Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival

Sunday, September 27, 2015, 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Rhode Island Street between 16th and 17th Streets in San Francisco

The San Francisco Center for the Book’s 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.

Using an unlikely printing press created by using a 1924 seven-ton Buffalo Springfield steamroller provided by Roots of Motive Power as a giant cylinder and the surface of Rhode Island Street itself as the bed of the press, a team of featured artists and printers create large-scale prints from three-foot-square, hand-carved “Battleship linoleum”. Now in its 12th year, 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 families and kids, from far and wide.

Admission is free!

Craft Vendor application deadline is July 31, 2015.
