Torpedo Factory art center, Alexandria, VA

Located at the site of an old naval munitions factory,  Torpedo factory art center is home to a number of art galleries and studios, a highlight of the Potomac riverfront in Alexandria, VA.  Our little bunch, consisting of seven kids + two adults, enjoyed a “scavenger” hunt in the center, exploring all the art, observing artists creating and designing and playing at the Alexandria archeology museum on the top floor. I loved all the colors and patterns. Many inspirations! And the nearby marina and the dock contributed to a “seaside” vibe. A fun afternoon!

How cool is this painting?

My younger one made friends with Mr. Paper Deer. Kids enjoyed the archeology museum and trying to solve a broken pottery puzzle!

  1. as always, Maja, your photos blow me away — they put me right in the picture! I used to love going to the Torpedo Factory when I lived in Alexandria. Bought a few pieces there. and the waterfront makes it feel like an entirely different city, doesn’t it? Thank you for sharing your wonderful point of view.
