via dei Colori SLO Italian Street Painting Festival
Saturday and Sunday September 26th and 27th, 2015. 10:00AM – 6:00PM daily.
Each year in September, the plaza of the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, in San Luis Obispo, California is transformed with colorful, large-scale street paintings created by artists of all ages and levels of talent. In keeping with a 24-year SLO tradition, Via dei Colori SLO will feature over 100 talented artists. Street painting has a long tradition in cities in Western Europe and is believed to have started in Italy in the 16th century.
AIACCC and the Children’s Museum share a strong, long-standing commitment to childhood art education, so both organizations are naturally excited about the new partnership. AIACCC’s fundraising efforts continue to provide grants to art teachers each year for local school art programs, while the Children’s Museum has been an invaluable local resource for children since 1990 as a place where lasting memories are created in a playful learning environment. The new partnership will better serve local schools with fundraising from a broader donor base, as well as a greater number of dedicated volunteers.
