Help For Freedoms launch the largest creative collaboration in U.S. history.

For Freedoms is launching the largest creative collaboration in the history of the United States: the 50 State Initiative. Through our Kickstarter campaign, fifty billboards by artists across all fifty states will spark civic dialogue about freedom and equality. Which states will you back?

Coordinating fifty billboards is no small feat, but we're up for the challenge. For Freedoms has demonstrated a history of taking on large-scale projects, but this is definitely our most ambitious work to date. That's why we've connected with so many local partnering institutions and artists. Our team at For Freedoms works hard, but we know when to ask for help. In addition to those local partners, we're asking you to be a part of making history.

50 States, 50 Billboards

Our work’s been seen on billboards, posters, in the news, and at public events, and it addresses fundamental questions about the link between our culture and civic life. From September to December 2018, we’re building The 50 State Initiative. Make history with us by helping to commission artists to take over 50 billboards across all 50 states.

Previous For Freedoms projects have included collaborations with artists Carrie Mae Weems, Trevor Paglen, Alec Soth, and Zoë Buckman in places like Cleveland, Flint, Memphis, Tallahassee, Denver, and more.

Help For Freedoms launch the largest creative collaboration in U.S. history.

For Freedoms is an artist-run initiative founded in 2016 by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman.
