What is “Off the Wall”?
The highly anticipated Off the Wall competition returns for its 19th 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: Art & Technology, Painting/Drawing, Poetry, Wearable Art, and our newest category: Photography! Each category is adjudicated by a professional in the field.
Traveling Exhibition: At the closing of the exhibit on Jan. 30, some or all of the Off the Wall #19 artwork will travel to Lockheed Martin’s Manassas location for a month long exhibition. It is optional to participate in the traveling exhibition.
