Torpedo Factory in Old Town Reopens on Weekends

The Torpedo Factory Artists Association (TFAA) announced that as part of the city’s phased reopening, the Torpedo Factory is now reopened to the public on weekends, with some precautions.

“The Torpedo Factory is now open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday,” the TFAA said on Facebook. “You can enter through the waterfront entrance and masks are required inside the building. Please come out and enjoy some art.”

According to the Torpedo Factory website:

  • Public hours are limited to 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only.
  • Capacity is set to 100 visitors at a time. This is not inclusive of artists in studios.
  • Elevator capacity is set to 2.
  • Masks are required for the duration of the visit.
  • Entrances and exits are limited to the designated door on the waterfront side.

The Torpedo Factory website also noted that all scheduled programs and private rentals of the Art Center have been canceled.

During the pandemic, there was some confusion and frustration with the city after artists said they were offered deferred payments rather than a reprieve on rent when the pandemic prevented them from being in the facility.

“Artists will still have working access to their studios during this time and staff will continue to ensure the health and safety of our artists and the building,” the website noted.
