Art exhibit offers 'urban therapy' for NYers
NEW YORK (AP) -- Noise never sleeps in New York City. Streets are choked with vehicles that produce a near constant din of rumbling engines. Parks are often full of chattering crowds on sunny days.
The clamor is enough to make even the hardiest New Yorkers brainsick, thirsting for a spot of tranquility in the swirl of urban chaos.
An exhibit by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes in a downtown Brooklyn storefront could be just the palliative for the over-worked, over-stimulated New Yorker.
Called the "Sanatorium," it is a temporary clinic where visitors can participate in 15 different idiosyncratic and tongue-in-cheek therapies that aim to lighten the load of urban life.
The therapies draw from Gestalt psychology, conflict resolution techniques, corporate coaching, psychodrama, art performance and hypnosis. Volunteers will serve as therapists.
