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.

2023 Via Colori Street Painting Artist Signups ARE FULL for 2023

PLEASE EMAIL if you would like be placed on the artist waitlist!

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

Unfortunately there are no travel stipends for visiting artists at this time.


Via Colori® 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.

Anthony says:

Hello, my name is Anthony Hall. I’m a tattoo artist who enjoys using my talents to give a bit of joy to others. I enjoy all different mediums of art. I’ve been doing art for Via Colori for 3 years and enjoy giving back to our communities through my artistic skill sets. I always do my best on each piece and enjoy bringing my personal influences and style to anything I do. I enjoy lots of different artistic disciplines, but drawing will always be my go-to. I believe Via Colori is important to our community by bringing a fresh view of artistry and creativity to all who participate. Every year I hear about how some people didn’t know they had so many talented artists in their community. I believe that art bridges divides that words cannot. Bringing art to the community can unite many groups who may have struggled to find mutual ground. Art is a language we can all speak, and its conversations are like no other.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to represent the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana. As our towns and cities grow and diversify, it’s important to have all people’s voices heard. I believe Girl Scouts equips young women with the skills and knowledge to have a strong voice in their communities and pursue their chosen paths with integrity. I’m happy to be a part of a non-profit that nurtures Girl Scouts to their fullest potential. I hope my art assists the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana in helping others and brightening futures for our young Girl Scouts. Check out more of Anthony’s work here!

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.
