Provided by ARTfactory

The highly anticipated Off the Wall competition returns for its 17th year! Despite this year’s challenges, the ARTfactory (formerly known as Center for the Arts) and Lockheed Martin are looking forward to showcasing and awarding local student artists.
Each year, 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, and the STEAM influenced category, Art & Technology (3D prints and digital designs). Each category is adjudicated by a professional in the field.
Due to COVID-19, the ARTfactory is not hosting a reception/open house for this exhibit. The gallery is open on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Viewing is by appointment Monday through Friday. The exhibit will also be available as a virtual exhibit on the ARTfactory website. Exhibit dates are Dec. 16 through Jan. 21.
Students may choose to participate in the virtual exhibit only if they prefer. Online entries due Nov. 20 at 5:00 p.m.
