Sponsored by the San Francisco Center for the Book
This unique fundraiser doubles as a rollicking block party where we'll be making prints carved especially for the occasion--with a steamroller! This year we're featuring large-scale linoleum-block prints by 16 artists, music by the Burning Band (straight from the Burning Man Festival), book-arts activities for all ages, plus sales tables for book arts.
The block party takes place on Carolina Street between 15th and 16th from 10AM-4PM. Then, back at the Center, the festivities continue from 4:30-7:30PM with a cocktail party, a live auction of steam-roller prints and a silent auction of other bookworks.
The block praty is free; admission to the silent auction is $20 in advance or $25 at the door. To order tickets, please contact Kathy Barr at the Center.
