Subway Therapy features approximately 2,000 anonymous sticky notes posted on the walls of New York’s Union Square and 14th Street/6th Avenue subway stations directly after the 2016 presidential election. Prompted by a single hand-drawn sign posted by the artist inviting passersby to “express themselves”, the sticky notes remained on the subway walls for five weeks, eventually numbering over 50,000 and spreading to other New York City stations and public transportation systems in Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, and Toronto. Visitors to the gallery are invited to write their own notes to continue the process at Arcadia. The exhibition remains on view through Sunday, April 2. More Information.
