Via Colori: Painting the Town Red (and Blue and Green and Yellow)

1 of 24
The fourth year of Via Colori, the two-day street painting festival in downtown Houston, saw more artists and visitors than ever before this weekend. Benefiting the Center for Hearing and Speech, the annual festival brought over 200 artists to create enormous and beautiful - if ephemeral - street art for all to enjoy. PHOTOS BY JASON MCELWEENIE
