For Freedoms is a collective of artists, arts institutions, and active citizens who experiment with and produce new forms of civic action. As part of the 50 State Initiative, For Freedoms erected artist-designed billboard installations across the United States that catalyzed conversations about our political system and climate.

In conjunction with Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again, this drop-in program invites participants to conceptualize and create their own billboard designs, exploring the power of advertising and large-scale images as Warhol did in his work. Joined by members of For Freedoms, participants will explore what it means for artwork to co-opt the commercial and political space. Will our messages collectively hold up over time? Do they provoke questions? Do they tell deeper stories?

Free for teens. Upon entering the Museum, pick up a ticket in the lobby. Refreshments and art materials provided. No RSVP required—bring a friend!
