STEAMROLLER PRINT PROJECT BLOCK-tober Fest
About the project.
The Steamroller Print Project started in 2000, as a means to get students, artists and the community to come together in a cooperative event to celebrate art and community.
The large scale relief (woodcut) printing blocks are carved over the course of a month utilizing both traditional hand tools as well as electric carvers, saws and routers. Many participants also chose to showcase their prints in Missoula's Annual Parade of Remembrance held each November 2nd, which is now in it's 26nd year. Steamroller prints are also exhibited around town to further showcase these wonderful works and have also been exhibited in three shows at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts in San Francisco, California.
Since it's initial year, the project has grown to not only include students from the university but also area students from local elementary schools, middle schools and high schools, along with students from neighboring institutions and artists from the community.
We are now moving into our eighteenth year of the project. For more information on the Steamroller Print Project, go to 2021 Upcoming Event or enjoy looking at images/videos from past events found under the menu on this website.
