Via Colori announced that the 2010 street painting festival will include a mural project. The project will be designed by artist Melanie Stimmell Van Latum, and executed by Melanie and 7 other master artists. The collaborative mural project will be made up of eight 12 foot by 13.5 foot panels. This artwork will be in addition to all the street paintings. Last year alone, there were over 150 artists participating.
I am extremely honored to be one of the master artists on this project and look forward to an exciting time working with Melanie and the other artists to complete this impressive work. The artwork will be framed by a mosaic border created by 55 high school students under the direction Reginald Adams, of the Museum of Cultural Arts, Houston.
This is the 5th anniversary of Via Colori in Houston and my 4th year to participate. I very much look forward to this project. I hope that you can attend the festival on November 20 and 21, 2010, in downtown Houston. The streets that will be painted are Bagby and Allen Parkway, at Heritage Park at 1100 Bagby, 77002.
The Via Colori festival is free and includes live music, great food, and squares and squares of wonderful art. The event benefits the Center for Hearing and Speech.
