Street Painting

Street Painting Artist Signups are now live for 2024! SPACE IS LIMITED! It is on a first come, first serve basis!

The 16th annual Via Colori® Street Painting Festival will be held October 19, 2024 – October 20, 2024.

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.

 Signups for 2024 are now open

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.

Street Painting Artists

We are super excited to introduce our 2024 Via Colori Featured Artist:

Kayla Morgan

Kayla Morgan is a Southern Indiana based artist. She has volunteered to teach girls how to street paint and has represented our festival and the mission of Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana throughout her artistic endeavors. She is a fearless and strong woman who is not afraid to work hard to achieve her goals. Her work frequently consists of young girls breaking barriers. She strives to make her communities thrive through her work in the arts. She has been recognized as one of the top rising local talents in the arts community.

Kayla says: Art is important to me because I can release emotions on to a canvas and especially after having my son, it kept me sane. Art can definitely change the world! I am a concept artist, and my type of art makes you think and look deeper than just the surface! I hope my art will make people look into themselves! I think Via Colori is important to the community because it allows the community to interact with Girl Scouts in a fun artistic way! It also is an event where all local artists from all levels and styles can mingle and create art inside the community together!

 I think supporting Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana is important to the present and futures of girls because it provides a sisterhood that will last forever. It offers opportunities for the girls in our communities to expand their network and have positive connections throughout the city.

I hope I inspire a little girl to keep painting, a mom to pick that brush back up and show Black people that we create amazing art too.

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.
