Alexandria Community Art Library

May 31, 2014 - July 13, 2014

In celebration of the Torpedo Factory Art Center’s 40th Anniversary, Chicago-based artist Sara Black and the art duo Hideous Beast will transform the Target Gallery into a community library. Constructed from repurposed and locally sourced building materials, this community space will feature a diverse array of public programming. While on the one hand serving to archive and share TFAC’s rich history as a creative place, the exhibition also questions newly emerging modes of both art making and arts funding.
