Each year, the Via Colori Street Painting Festival raises money for The Center for Hearing and Speech — which helps to serve more than 8,500 children with hearing loss each year. There are music stages, a kids’ zone and food to be had as well but the focus remains on the creativity and execution of some beautiful and breathtaking works of art. The streets of Houston have never looked better than with these murals on the ground.
Via Colori features more than 240 local, national and international artists that create impressive chalk murals on the streets of downtown Houston. The only festival of its kind in Houston, also features three stages of live music, Via Bambini family zone, food and beverage vendors over the two-day event.
The event raises more than $300,000 annually to fund health and educational services for children with hearing loss in Houston through The Center for Hearing and Speech and its renowned audiologists, teachers and speech-language pathologists. Each year, the Center has helped more than 8,500 children with hearing loss.
