The A-TEAM: Past Present and Future

In 2001, five self-taught visual artists who used the services of the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) and had participated for several years in the Extra Helpings arts program at TASK, met with Extra Helpings volunteer Susan Darley to discuss the possibility of forming an artist cooperative. The nascent idea was to offer the clients, who possessed artistic interests and talents but did not have the personal resources to pursue their creative activities, a collegial environment in which they could hone their creative abilities and ultimately sell their artwork and share the benefits of their efforts. Because from the outset, the artists made all the decisions about how the A-TEAM was run and what projects it undertook, membership in the group also provided an opportunity for the artists to learn entrepreneurial skills. The number of artists grew quickly, and the walls of the soup kitchen became a year-round gallery for the display of their work. Over the years, the “A-TEAM Artists of Trenton" have participated in hundreds of shows at such diverse venues as museums (e.g.s, The New Jersey State Museum and The Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie), galleries (e.g.s, Artworks, the Arts Council of Princeton, the Gourgaud Gallery in Cranbury, the galleries at Prallsville Mills in Stockton and the Outsider Gallery in Frenchtown), corporate offices (e.g.s, The Pennington-Ewing Athletic Center, Jingoli Properties), governmental departments (e.g.s, NJ Department of Environmental Protection, NJ Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, The Municipal Court of Trenton); non-profit organizations (e.g.s, The Trenton Health Team, The Redding Senior Center, Henry J. Austin Health Center, The Rescue Mission) and religious institutions (e.g.s, Trinity Church of Princeton, Dorothea Dix Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Bordentown, The Princeton Jewish Center). The A-TEAM artists also reached out to the Trenton community by lending their work to local businesses and non-profit groups and leading monthly art workshops for residents of the Rescue Mission of Trenton and consumers at The ARC/Mercer, an organization that provides services for physically and cognitively disabled adults. In addition, the artists have hosted clients from the Trenton Psychiatric Hospital’s art therapy program at their regular TASK studio hours. In 2010, the A-TEAM artists began seeking tax-exempt IRS status for their unique collaborative efforts and activities, and in July 2014, 501©(3) nonprofit status was finally granted, thus allowing A-TEAM supporters to make tax-deductible contributions to the artists and allowing the artists to submit proposals to agencies that fund arts groups.
