From there we will make our way into the Torpedo Factory to see Target Gallery’s solo exhibition “LE DRIP: The Uncontainable Sauce of Black Essence” by artist Blu Murphy.

We will then have the option to continue on a walkthrough of studios and galleries in the Torpedo Factory Art Center with Leslie.

Please read before registering:

Face masks are recommended to wear inside the Torpedo Factory Art Center and some studios require it, so guests should come prepared (though extras will be available in the gallery should that be necessary). This is subject to change but at this time masks are recommended while inside.

There are handicapped parking spots directly in front of Waterfront Park, as well as the Torpedo Factory, which may be accessed by turning left from Prince St. We will be walking a short 2 minute walk from the park to the Torpedo Factory (about 400 ft) and then the TFAC itself has accessible entrances from the waterfront, which we will use.

Accessible bathrooms are available at the TFAC, as well as a freight elevator if needed. We recommend people bring mobility aids as necessary. A wheelchair is available and must be requested in advance so the venue can prepare.

You may find more accessibility information on the Torpedo Factory website here.

Driving / Ride-share - There is garage and street parking available, as well as free 2 hour street parking further down Union St by Founders Park (other side of the TFAC).

Metro - You may travel via the blue or yellow line metro and get off at the King St Metro station. There is a free trolley that will come pick people up and drop them off at City Hall which is about 2/3 blocks away from the TFAC. It’s about a 20 minute walk on foot from King St Station.

Water Taxi - The water taxi will drop you off at the harbor directly behind the Torpedo Factory, simply exit to the left and walk toward Waterfront Park with the large “I Love You” installation (about 400-500 ft).
