Art League History

For The Art League’s 60th anniversary in 2014, we went through six decades’ worth of archives to create a huge timeline, displayed on the second floor of the Torpedo Factory.

The timeline takes us through each decade of The Art League’s history, touching on important people and events up through the present day. It also includes lots of interesting tidbits you might not have known about The Art League — like the reason ceramics enrollment skyrocketed in the 1990s or the incident behind the Gallery’s ban on artwork with living things.
