All roads lead to creativity, especially when 200 artists converge on the streets surrounding City Hall on November 22 – 23. Join us for a weekend full of color and creativity celebrating the artistic spirit of Houston. After eight successful years, the Via Colori ® Street Painting Festival, presented by LINN Energy, has grown into one of Houston’s signature art events and it remains the only street painting festival of its kind in the region.
This FREE festival attracts more than 30,000 attendees with its art, live music, activities and food and drink. Via Colori benefits The Center for Hearing and Speech, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping deaf children listen, speak and read.
THEME: THE ART OF SOUND
Supporting The Center for Hearing and Speech, this year's theme is The Art of Sound. Artists will convey this theme through their work to raise awareness for the children that The Center for Hearing and Speech are helping in the Houston community and beyond.
