To celebrate the diversity of our city and the beautiful architecture of Houston's downtown skyline, a massive street painting will be produced at this year's festival. This exciting addition will be the focal point of the festival and will feature original artwork depicting the four corners of the Houston Skyline from a 360-degree perspective. This colossal project will be one city-block long and led by Colorado's "most versatile artist" Douglas Rouse.

Rouse continues to reinvent himself for any occasion and has proven his artistic abilities, creativity and reliability to companies and individuals worldwide. Check our Doug's website to see more of his incredible work!

This spectacular display of art would not be complete without our gracious and talented local artists who will volunteer their time round-the-clock the weekend of the festival ,or our sponsors who make the funding for the project possible.
