Trenton Community A-TEAM Artists
Trenton soup kitchen artists embrace opera
“Even among those who are educated and well off, opera can be an acquired taste. For the Trenton Community A-Team artists of the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, the experience of opera may be even farther off. Thanks to a collaboration with the Princeton Festival, the A-Team artists have embraced opera for an exhibit that runs through June 30 at Thomas Sweet Café, Montgomery.”

The Princeton Festival Guild (TPF Guild) is delighted to have worked with the Trenton Community A-TEAM (TCAT) Artists, currently located at the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK), to present Festival-inspired exhibits during the June 2015 Season. We hope you enjoy LE NOZZE DI FIGARO-related works displayed in the McCarter Theatre Main Lobby during performances and that you’ll also visit the *Thomas Sweet Café Gallery to appreciate additional music-anchored works through June 30th.
Recently, TCAT became a 501(c)3 not for profit organization and 30% of each art sale is donated by the artists for the benefit of all A-TEAM artists to develop their talents and support the creativity of other self-taught local artists.
