Rik Olson’t grandfather was a steamroller in the 20’s. Here he is with his wife and their Thor motorcycle-one of the hippest hogs of the day! Don’t they both look happy , about to experience the breeze in their faces? The irony here is that in the next century , their grandson Rik Olson a world class printmaker , would be creating artwork using a steamroller in lieu of a letterpress! The 10th Annual Roadwork Steamroller Printing Festival will fall on September 29th this year form 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the prints will be for sale. Check it out at sfcb.org. Wouldn’t Grandpa and Grandma be proud?
