New York City is an incubator for upcoming artists and inspiring ideas. Today, we are sharing more about the intriguing Union Square Subway Therapy Project that has surely called everyone’s attention! Go leave your sticky note!
One of the reasons we love New York is because it it’s constantly booming are scene! Every day, every hour and every minute, you are able to see a new art work around town.
In addition, some of the most talented artists on the planet are based here (lucky us!), and we just love to know “what’s coming next”!
New York’s subway can be an adventure for many, but also hectic and confusing. That is to say, this week while commuting around Manhattan to our endless meetings, our eyes were immediately drawn to this fantastic, colorful, eternal wall with thousands and thousands of Post Its!
We promptly stopped to see what is was about and simply loved the idea! The Union Square Subway Therapy Project glued an infinite number of Post It’s to the subway walls.
The messages? Of Hope! Love! Life! Protesting! Defending! Inspiring! Thanking! Questioning!
“Subway Therapy is about making people smile, laugh, and feel less stress. It’s about peaceful expression and being part of a vibrant and diverse community.”
It was just so fantastic to stop and read these message. Many, of course, we resonated immediately. These were the very inspiring and loving. Others were very resentful and questioning certain relevant topics. We respect them too!
So, if you want to be part of this mural of ideas and messages, head to Union Square and leave your sticky note!

And, lucky us!!! This project transformed into a beautiful book!
“People have been asking me over the last few months if I will be making a book, and now I can say yes, I will be! On October 24th, 2017 people will be able to hold a piece of Subway Therapy in their hands.
I’m very excited work with Bloomsbury and bring Subway Therapy to life in print. I started this project to help people feel less stress and connect with their community, and it is my hope that these books will inspire people to explore new pathways of expression and understanding. “
It is called “Signs of Hope: Messages From Subway Therapy” and you can buy it here!
