Torpedo Factory Art Center

01 | 06

The Torpedo Factory, a 1974 munitions factory converted into an art center, is home to 72 studios and 10 galleries where guests can experience art in person and in progress.


Visit three floors of studios for ceramics, collage, fiber, glass, enamel, jewelry, mixed-media, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. Meet some of the 150 artists and learn about what inspires them, ask about their creative process, and purchase original work for your collection.
The Torpedo Factory is also home to The Art League and the Alexandria Archaeology Museum.


Ornamented with one-of-a-kind artwork, the center provides a unique and industrial backdrop to your private event. The outdoor brick patio also offers a spectacular view of the Potomac River and is a breathtaking place to host your event under the stars.
