Enjoy a special after-hours event at the Torpedo Factory Art Center every month. Browse open studios and galleries, interact with artists, and enjoy special programming. Stop by on your way to dinner and make an evening of it!

In January, join us for Art + Inclusivity, in partnership with the Alexandria Human Rights Commission.
