Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival

Fools say print is dead. Artists drive a seven-ton 1924 steamroller onto the streets of Potrero Hill to prove them dead wrong. The 12th Annual Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival promises a day of creativity for printmakers, book binders, hand-letterers and the rest of their esoteric ilk. Watch artists create large-scale linoleum prints live, using the antique machine and Rhode Island Street itself as a press; once thoroughly inspired, dig into some hands-on arts and crafts or just check out more than 50 vendors on-hand to share their wares. The event is perfectly family-friendly, ideal for mini-crafters and junior gear heads alike.
