Student artists from Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) were selected as top winners for their pieces featured in the 19th Off the Wall art exhibit and competition sponsored by Lockheed Martin and hosted by the ARTFactory in Manassas.

See the video below to take a virtual walk through the exhibit and view some of the winning pieces and the artists.

The competition encourages student expression and creativity in a professional setting. PWCS high school students shared their talents in the areas of art and technology, painting/drawing, poetry, wearable art, and the newest category, photography. Each category is judged by a professional in that field.
