Subway Therapy: An Evening Discussion with Matthew 'Levee' Chavez

This was demonstrated when Matthew "Levee" Chavez launched "Subway Therapy" at the 14th Street–Union Square station. Originally conceived as a one-on-one conversation between artist and subway riders, the project blossomed and changed forms when Chavez provided sticky notes for strangers to use to express their feelings about the presidential election of 2016.
