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 used a construction grade steamroller to print large 2′x2′wood-cut prints of 8 Pittsburgh neighborhoods. The live steamroller demonstration took place at Construction Junction’s annual Big Pour event on September 8, 2012.
A group of 8 artists designed unique interpretations of different neighborhoods of Pittsburgh in 2’x2’ wood blocks. Prints of the separate neighborhoods will be distributed to library branches in Allegheny County to be enjoyed throughout the city before all pieces are put on display in the Oakland main branch library for the month of January 2013.
