Show your true colors this April at the debut of Via Colori, a two-day, family-friendly street painting festival taking place at Post Houston on the second and third.
Celebrate art, color, and mental health awareness at Via Colori in Houston. Beginning on Saturday, April 2, Via Colori is an outdoor chalk street art celebration that allows artists of all ages to create their own unique works of art. Located at the brand new Post Houston facility, the festival aims to showcase the diverse artistic talent of the community.
Featured categories include Mission Feature, Art Partner Feature, 3-D Feature, and Youth Art Mentor. It will also feature Via Bambini and a new Kids Zone.
At this free, family-oriented festival, children can draw their own art square among other artists, vendors, volunteers, and festival-goers. Note, Via Colori is not a juried art competition – it’s all about fun, imagination, and creativity.
As noted, this event is to inspire awareness for positive mental well-being:
“The event is designed to raise awareness and funds to benefit The Institute for Spirituality and Health at the Texas Medical Center,” the website reads.
“All proceeds from Via COlori Houston will directly support The Institute’s extensive offering of programs, education, and research targeting health and medical professionals as well as the public at large, including support of at-risk populations and essential workers, doctors, nurses, teachers, and all who are the fabric of our community.”
Via Colori takes place from 9 am to 7 pm on Saturday, April 2, and from 9 am to 5 pm on Sunday, April 3 at POST Houston located at 401 Franklin Street.
