Via Colori® Artist and Students to Create Street Art at Frozen Sing-A-Long
HOUSTON (June 25, 2014): Cool off this summer and watch KIPP High School students represent the Via Colori® Street Painting Festival as they create chalk art at Miller Outdoor Theatre’s Frozen Sing-A-Long on July 5 at 8:30 p.m. Admission is free. KIPP students will create whimsical, child-oriented artwork to the left of the stage near the concession stands.
Benefiting The Center for Hearing and Speech (CHS), Via Colori will be held November 22 – 23, 2014, at Hermann Square at City Hall. With this year’s theme, Art of Sound, more than 200 artists will create murals illustrating the meaning of sound. Watch eye-popping 3D art come to life, rock out to musical performances on three stages, enjoy activities for all ages and tasty concessions. Via Colori is a massive outdoor art gallery, family festival and music concert all in one.
Rebekah Tee, Director of KIPP Houston Art School and 2010 Fan Favorite of Via Colori, says of the festival, “Via Colori is our favorite event each year,” said. “My students and I have been involved in the Festival since it was introduced to Houston in 2006. We participate in the Via Apprendista student area, face paint for children attendees and perform dances.”
“Via Colori gives Houstonians access to museum-quality art, and also gives the opportunity to watch the art unfold before their eyes,” said CHS’s Executive Director Renée Davis. This year, Via Colori expects to have 30,000 guests in attendance and to raise more than $400,000 to benefit programs for children with hearing loss.
