Great fun amazing artist. Just hate it was too cold to stay and get the results on all the answers and to see which team won. May be a good idea in the future to post or email results for those that can't make it to both days.

From Our Editors

Each year, more than 200 talented artists flock to downtown Houston, their minds filled with creative ideas and their arms full of pastel chalk. The reason for this artistic gathering? The Houston Via Colori Festival, presented by LINN Energy. During this free festival, local and guest artists sketch and smudge chalk into street art that explore themes such as sports, medicine, and energy. Some people work collaboratively, others work individually. Whatever their modus operandi, the artists transform Houston into a free, walkable art gallery that delights its visitors for two days. The vivid creations are fleeting however; they disappear with just a bit of water, much like a street mime. But that only serves to make the event more special.

To complement the chalk murals, the Via Colori Festival also hosts free musical performances, a Family Zone and Via Bambini. Here, visitors can get their faces painted or design and create their own chalk art. Guests can further extend the free festivities with two separate ticketed activities. Guests may compete for prizes in the Ikea Scavenger Hunt or take part in five mini-events in the Kroger Mood Lounge. Entry to the latter includes a football game viewing, a collaborative art installation, an after-hours art stroll with beer tastings, and a visit with Keith Villa. All of the festivities and their combined revenue make for the largest annual fundraiser for the The Center for Hearing and Speech. For more than 60 years, this noble charity has helped deaf children learn to listen, speak and read.
