street printing festival

June 21, Sebastopol Center for the Arts will host their second Street Printing Festival.

The 2014 event was much fun and a great success and due to growing demand, SCA is organizing a repeat.

In this free, public event, a pavement roller and space on the Sebastopol Center for the Arts’ parking lot will be used as a giant printing press. Original linocuts created by local artists will be pressed by the roller in front of a live audience to create large-scale prints from which a limited number will be for sale.
