Art in Action: Make a Statement, Change Your World (Hardcover)
Matthew "Levee" Chavez is the creator of Subway Therapy, an ongoing immersive project at the Union Square subway station in Manhattan. A believer in the therapeutic power of communication and providing people with an opportunity to engage, he has worked in crisis management and education in a variety of different roles, including at a magnet school for students with autism. He is a natural born listener--strangers have always talked to him on buses, trains, subways, and planes, and sidewalks. He lives in Brooklyn.
