More than 200 artists transformed the pavement of downtown Houston into an unconventional art gallery last weekend for the Houston Via Colori Street Painting Festival. The festival showcased the artistry of 10 of the city’s best emerging high school-age artists, including Cinco Ranch High School’s Samrath Kaur.
Kaur, along with the other artists, showcased her talent by creating a chalk mural directly on the pavement to benefit children with hearing impairments.
Via Colori is a free two-day event that benefits The Center for Hearing and Speech. Festival attendees got an up-close and personal view of the artwork and talked to the artists, all while enjoying more than a dozen local bands.
