Our Steamroller Festival is our largest community event of the year, bringing hundreds of people from all over to Artspace at Untitled. This one day festival is rooted in the printing of large-scale woodblocks carved by local Oklahoma artists. We bring in a 5 ton steamroller and print pre-carved blocks throughout the day on Tyvek paper. Printing will also take place inside in our in-house printmaking studio as well. This event is open to all artists. You do not have to be a member of our studio to participate.

You won’t want to miss the live music, artist vendors and food trucks at this family friendly event! All ages are welcome with a kids tent full of activities for younger attendees. It is sure to be a fun, art-filled day as our community supports our working and exhibiting Oklahoma artists!

History of the Festival

A day of collaboration for people of all ages – young children, high school students, artists, and the general public.

The first steamroller festival held at Untitled in 2013 brought over 100 visitors to Deep Deuce with no advertising. In 2017, we reached out to local businesses and organizations to help us host a Cinco de Mayo mixology party the night before the festival, which featured live music, a meet & greet with the Big Ink artists, and food & drink from some of Oklahoma City's best establishments. With the help of our amazing artists, volunteers, sponsors and collaborators we were able to produce an all-day festival where over 60 artists we able to print and display their work. In 2018 the festival continued to expand with over 100 participating artists and 24 sponsors. Students from our Mentorship Program, college students and artists from across the state and region participated in the festival. This event continues to expand more into the Deep Deuce district, engaging more individuals in the Oklahoma art community. We look forward to the ranging participants and visitors for the 2019 Steamroller Festival. Mark your calendars!
