artistpage.jpgArtists are the soul of Via Colori Houston, bringing vision, talent and inspiration to our streets. Over 250 artists transform the pavement of downtown Houston into eye-popping displays of color. Festival attendees watch live as artists bring their masterpieces to life, creating an outdoor museum before our eyes. Via Colori’s local and internationally-renowned artists gather together in the spirit of community and creativity to support the mission of The Center for Hearing and Speech.
