Experience art in person and in progress at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Founded in 1974 in an old munitions plan, the Torpedo Factory is home to the largest collection of publicly accessible working artist studios in the U.S.

Just south of Washington, D.C., the Torpedo Factory Art Center overlooks the Potomac River in Old Town Alexandria. Each year, more than a half-million national and international visitors meet and interact with resident artists.

With 82 studios and 6 galleries open to the public, you can meet some of the 165 artists and watch them work. Learn about what inspires them, ask about their creative process, and purchase original work for your collection.

Visit three floors of studios for ceramics, collage, fiber, glass, enamel, jewelry, mixed-media, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.

Don't miss the Target Gallery, the Torpedo Factory's very own contemporary exhibition space. It features high-caliber national and international artists in a variety of visual media on a rotating schedule.

The Torpedo Factory is also home to The Art League and the Alexandria Archaeology Museum.
