      Hank Willis Thomas was born in 1976, in Plainfield, NJ, and currently lives and works in New York. This year, he and Eric Gottesman founded For Freedoms, the first artist-run super PAC. Inspired by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1941 speech, “Four Freedoms” (freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear), this project has presented public works from contemporary artists to inspire deeper political engagement for citizens who want to have a greater impact on the American political landscape.
