Steamroller Art

PITTSBURGH -- According to the website http://steamrolledpgh.wordpress.com/about/: "The Steamrolled Pittsburgh project is a collaboration between Construction Junction and the Carnegie Libraries of Pittsburgh thanks to funding from the Sprout fund. Steamrolled Pittsburgh will use a construction grade steamroller to print large 2′x2′wood-cut prints of 8 Pittsburgh neighborhoods."

The resulting prints are on display at the Oakland branch of the Carnegie Library.
