Photographers re-create famous artworks from Norman Rockwell and update their for modern times.
As a nexus between art, politics, commerce, and education, For Freedoms aims to inject anti-partisan, critical thinking that fine art can encourage into the political and cultural landscape. For Freedoms was founded in 2016 by artists Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman.
In June 2018, For Freedoms launched a non-partisan, nationwide campaign called the 50 State Initiative, and invited artists, cultural and academic institutions, and social justice organizations to experiment with new forms of creative civic engagement in the months leading up to the midterm elections. For Freedoms examined our collective freedoms and mapped out the artistic infrastructure of our country through hundreds of concurrent programs, including town halls, exhibitions, lawn signs, and billboards.
