Alexandria, Virginia – Since 1974, the Torpedo Factory Art Center has been more than a landmark in Alexandria. He uniquely demonstrated the city’s dedication and support to artists and the benefits they bring to the local economy.
Now, city council is considering a range of options to increase revenues and boost the operations of the former US Navy munitions factory. Options include reconfiguring the space, adding new business features, relocating or reducing some artist studio spaces, and transforming the building into a public-private partnership.
Agenda Alexandria will explore issues surrounding options for changing the Torpedo Factory Art Center at its January 24, 2022 meeting, to be held at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial. We will have a small social reception at 6:30 p.m., with the program starting at 7:00 p.m.
We will also be broadcasting the program live on our social media, in collaboration with the Alexandria City High School Broadcast Club and the Zebra newspaper.

Agenda: Alexandria is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-partisan organization that encourages informed debate and discussion on a wide variety of local issues without taking a stand. We run in-person and digital programs on topics of interest to residents of the city of Alexandria.
