The highly anticipated Off the Wall competition returns for its 18th year! Each year the area high school students are invited to share their talent by participating in a high school art exhibit and competition sponsored by Lockheed Martin. The competition encourages student expression and creativity in a professional setting.The exhibit includes student work in the following categories: Visual Art, Poetry, Wearable Art, and our STEAM influenced category, Art & Technology (3D prints & digital designs). Each category is adjudicated by a professional in the field.

*Traveling Exhibition: The Off the Wall student exhibition has an option for traveling after its closing at ARTfactory January 22 to Lockheed Martin for the month of February. This traveling exhibit is tentative, and we will provide additional details as soon as possible. As in previous years, participation in the traveling exhibition is completely optional.
