What do you get when you put together 6 artists, some big linoleum blocks, and a 3-ton steamroller?

It’s Roadworks: Steamroller Prints, San Francisco Center for the Book’s fifth annual art-in-the-street-festival at Potrero Hill on Saturday, September 20. Here’s the link where you can see what it looked like last year.

In addition to steamroller printmaking, there’s music, free bookmaking and printmaking fun for kids, and dozens of the Bay Area’s finest book arts vendors selling their wares. You can get a bite to eat, buy a “little lino” steamroller print and pull your very own letterpress print.

While you’re in the neighborhood, dip into the Center for the Book and see their exhibit coinciding with Banned Books Week: Banned and Recovered: Artists Repond to Censorship, a collaboration with Oakland’s African American Museum and Library.

Roadwork: Steamroller Prints will be on DeHaro St. between 16th and 17th Sts. from noon to 5 pm.
