Historic Manassas, Inc. and the City of Manassas work together to bring beautiful pieces of art to the Historic Downtown area of the City. This is an annual competition held in the fall/winter where artists are asked to participate. About 70 pieces are selected to grace city light poles, however, in 2022/23 only 40 were selected because of the 150th Anniversary of the City of Manassas. First, second, and third-place winners are chosen in a juried competition each year. 2023 first-place winner Rebekah Keener painted April Joy as you can see to the left. We invite you to participate in this competition next year or in years to come.
