The Torpedo Factory Art Center Building was formerly a munitions plant during World Wars I and II. In September, 1974, the Art Center opened in the Torpedo Factory as a Bicentennial project. The idea was conceived by Marian Van Landingham, a local artist, who became the Center's first director. The Alexandria City Council approved the rehabilitation of this building for the continuing use by artists and the community.
