A planned screening of a film covering the history of the Torpedo Factory is being turned into an online viewing party tonight.
“A Brush with History” is a film by local director Nora Kubach about the Torpedo Factory’s 100-year history.
“The Art Center is an early example of placemaking in the country,” the Torpedo Factory Art Center said in a Facebook post, “a structure that went from making weapons of war, to now producing meaningful works of art by inspirational artists, and serving its community in a different way.”
The online premiere is tonight (Thursday) at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a live Q&A session with the filmmakers and participants in the movie. The event listing said viewers will be able to write in questions and have them answered during the video chat.
A link to the video page is not available yet but will be posted on the Facebook page.
The Art Center itself, meanwhile, remains closed until at least May 18.
