Since its creation in 1995 by a small group of Lake Worth residents led by Erin Allen and Maryanne Webber, the Street Painting Festival has grown into the most highly anticipated free cultural event in South Florida. Modeled after I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival in Santa Barbara, California, the art of street painting has attracted onlookers since the 16th century, when crowds would gather to watch as itinerant artists created masterworks on the cobblestones. Now in its third decade, the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival attracts 100,000 visitors each year.

The Project serves 50,000 children in more than 100 schools with visual and performing arts workshops and performances throughout Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.
