Hues of every color on the spectrum will cover the pavement surrounding Houston’s Hermann Square at City Hall as the city reinvents its annual street painting festival, Via Colori, Nov. 18–19. Some 25,000 attendees will head to the 12th annual event to witness more than 200 Texan and international artists colorize the streets using pastel chalks—creating ephemeral artwork that will only remain for two days. Proceeds benefit The Center for Hearing and Speech, a local organization that helps children with hearing loss learn to listen, speak, and read. The festival’s theme, “70 Years in Color,” will celebrate the center’s 70 years of service.
