Friends of the Torpredo Factory Art Center


To promote the Torpedo Factory Art Center as a vital part of the City of Alexandria and of the greater Washington metropolitan area.  We fulfill our mission by building connections between the Center, its artists (in partnership with the Torpedo Factory Artists Association, a separate entity) and the community. 


Friends of the Torpedo Factory Art Center has several program highlights. The first is a mentor program which matches high school art students with a Torpedo Factory artist, which also allows for the student to have an exhibition in the Art Center's Target Gallery. Friends also co-sponsors the "Young at Art" show at the Durant Center wiht the Senior Services of Alexandria as well as the Goodwin House. There is also a lecture series and a program at the Alexandria Academy.
