Street Painting

2023 Via Colori Street Painting Artist Signups Now Open

The 15th annual Via Colori® Street Painting Festival will be held October 21, 2023 – October 22, 2023.

Via Colori® Kentucky strives to embrace the courage behind creativity. Street Painting continues to be a popular category of art all over the world and we want to showcase the amazing talents of all of our artists. The first recorded street-painting competition and ‘festival’ was held in London in 1906. Over a hundred years later, we are still creating amazing works of art, that though temporary, are no less beautiful than those created a century ago. The Via Colori® Street Painting Festival is the modern day version of a centuries-old tradition in which dozens of volunteer artists create large-scale pastel artworks directly on the pavement of our waterfront.

Register to create a 4×4, 6×6 or 10×10 square on your own, with a partner or a group.

Registration for artists ends October 1, 2023. Sign up today!

Because our sponsors believe in supporting the arts, there is no charge for the artists, and materials are included.

ViaColori® supports the efforts of the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana.

By participating, the artist agrees to allow Via Colori to use photographs of them and of their finished and/or in-process work to be used for promotional purposes.

Sponsor an Artist

Via Colori® offers you at least one advantage not found at other festivals. At most art shows, the public sees the sponsor’s name once. But, because Via Colori artists are creating the work on the pavement during the festival, it changes each time the public passes. People return again and again to mark the progress of the work in the process, they see your name and logo, denoting your contribution. Banners denoting your sponsorship will be prominently displayed above a painting sponsored by you! Your sponsorship will also be listed on our website, social media accounts and highlighted throughout the year.
