The highly anticipated Off the Wall competition returns for its 17th year! Despite this year’s challenges, the ARTfactory and Lockheed Martin are looking forward to showcasing and awarding our local student artists! Each year the area high school students (Manassas City/Prince William County) 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, and our STEAM influenced category, Art & Technology (3D prints & digital designs). Each category is adjudicated by a professional in the field.

Check out Elan Magazine’s June 2020 issue written about our Off the Wall winners from last year! (See Pages 16-21).

*Note: Due to COVID-19, the ARTfactory is not hosting a reception/open house for this exhibit. The exhibit will be available for viewing by appointment only, and will also be available as a virtual exhibit on our website.

*Traveling Exhibition: The Off the Wall student exhibition has an option for traveling after its closing at ARTfactory January 21 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.
