“Our partnership with the Torpedo Factory Art Center is incredibly special, as celebrating Alexandria’s local culture is placed at the forefront of what Hilton Alexandria Mark Center represents,” Greg Langweg, General Manager of Hilton Alexandria Mark Center said in advance of the unveiling.

“Along with guests being able to enjoy products and treats sourced from local businesses, which we just debuted at our new Marketplace, they can now experience the talents of Alexandria’s best artists.”

The exhibit features fifteen original artworks from the Torpedo Factory’s top Resident Artists and Artists Pro Tem, selected through a competitive jury process.
