Off the Wall is an annual high school art exhibit and competition organized by the Center for the Arts and sponsored by Lockheed Martin.
The competition encourages student expression and creativity in a professional setting and allows the participants to gain experience in the field of art. The Off the Wall competition is open to students attending high school in Manassas City and/or Prince William County.
The competition includes student work in the following categories:
