Zev Glassenberg, the Artist!

Zev Glassenberg, star of The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business, is a busy guy! When he is not off exploring the globe and participating in a massive scavenger hunt, he finds time for his art. Zev is a talented artist, that uses innovative techniques to create some amazing work. Zev will paint different types of canvas, than use a giant hole-punch to cut out circles. From there, he assembles a mosaic to form different objects. Here are a few to check out!

    Zev, I do not watch Amazing Race but I’m inspired by you!!! My youngest son will be 7yrs old in 1mo & 9days. When he was first diagnosed I cried all of 10mins feeling sorry for myself & then realized that God must have found me worthy enough to be blessed to be a mother of an autistic child (he’s also ADHD). My 8yr old has Emotional Behavioral Disabilities & ADHD so I really feel DOUBLE blessed by God as a mother. Sometimes I question how far my youngest will go in life, what he will accomplish, but just like you he LOVES art and can sing so beautifully you’d swear it’s an angel singing (he stays on key a cappella!). But lately he has an even bigger dream that I pray one day he WILL be doing. His father is Active Duty USAF & is a crew chief on the CV-22 Osprey (insert laughter at Osprey now, we’ve been together for 11yrs and 10 & 1/2yrs married so his first job was MH-53 “Super Jolly” which were the BEST!). My autistic son, Trent, now has a goal of actually working on AND eventually flying the aircraft, in general, being Active Duty USAF like Daddy as it is history in both sides of our families. I keep on encouraging him to set his goals high because of stories of encouragement like yours and others who have conquered any range of Autism & overcome the obstacles they pose. Thank you for sharing you’re artwork (which is AMAZING in itself) & your story! You’ve given this mother a TREMENDOUS amount of hope!!!

    I have a 13 year old autistic son he also loves to draw but not so much on paper he does it on the computer he won 1st place in a contest at his old elementary school he competed with regular kids not special needs. I am very proud of him.

    It is so uplifting to finally see autism portrayed in a positive light!
    We at http://www.autisticglobetrotting.com wish Zev the best in the ‘Amazing Race’ and hope his story will inspire and encourage others in the autistic community to travel,just like we aim to do.

    Hi Zev! Hi Justin! Thanks so much for keeping us glued to Amazing Race with both of you! When I see Justin, I see myself, how I deal with my AS teen. Loads of patience, pre-empt, pep-talk, preparation as far as possible. Sometimes we take the larger load. But sometimes ‘The Beyond Awesome’ (that’s what my AS teen calls herself after another neuro-atypical fren called her that!)pulls loads off we never expected they could achieve. When my AS teen gets into her fixated pre-tantrum behaviour, I got both of you to remind us how we should sail the rough winds out the way you guys did – Zev will space himself out for a while and Justin will use hesitative silence for support. Esp during the near last leg – most AS people would have freaked out trying to get the dance steps right – let alone the accompanying nuances and physical style of it! Cheers! You’ll always be our number one in Special-ness!
