Help support a unique exhibition and event space, the growth of our arts education program for teens in underserved communities and studio of the soon to launch AOTps Radio Podcast.
One of a few nonprofit art organizations / alternative spaces  in Williamsburg, a short trip from Manhattan by the L train, AOT Project Salon is located in the heart of Williamsburg’s thriving bar and restaurant scene right off of Metropolitan Avenue. The Salon's gallery is an emerging force in giving new, committed and alternative voices a nurturing venue in which to offer the public an opportunity to experience an ongoing program of exhibitions, projects, music, poetry, and events.

Douglas Turner is the curator and Director for all AOT programs . Douglas' commitment to the Brooklyn community is most evident as the organization's driving force in providing art programming (The Equal Education Initiative) and public mural programs for children in underserved communities with the cooperation of State Senator Jesse E. Hamilton III, District 20. His wide-ranging creative taste has developed a 2015 and 2016 exhibition program that includes multiple discipline artists with varied approaches from the entire New York Metropolitan area and beyond.

CLICK HERE TO MAKE A DONATION WITH OUR CREDIT CARD PROCESSOR
CLICK HERE TO MAKE A DONATION VIA PAYPAL
OR
Add your desired contribution in the "Give $" Box

And Follow these instructions from Patreon:
"If you'd only like to support a creator on Patreon for one month, simply delete your pledge after the first of the month, when we process pledges to creators.

Please Note: We (<g>Patreon</g>) charge all pledges of $100 or more immediately, but the payment is still sent to the creator at the beginning of the month. So if you delete your pledge before the 1st, you will be refunded the pledge in the form of a credit to your account and the pledge will not be sent to the creator. So make sure to keep that pledge intact at least until the 1st!"



Our Mission:
AOT is a nonprofit art and cultural organization dedicated to providing opportunities for underrepresented artists and artists at their various stages of emergence with exhibition space and resources. We create arts-based education programming for children in underserved communities in Brooklyn, NY. We fill a gap in arts programming and curatorial initiatives creating diversity through action that consciously works for all people and with/for people of color and communities of color, engaging in contemporary art dialogues beyond community-based initiatives that fail to challenge the status-quo. We also maintain an art and culture journal (douglas-turner.com), that provides a confident and well-informed opinion, presenting artists and ideas in the form of feature writing, interviews, and studio visits.
