Contemporary artist Hank Willis Thomas and For Freedoms have teamed with Summit for a very special project around the 2016 presidential election, and if you live in the Florida area you may have already experienced it.

Summit commissioned Thomas to share his work tailored to the election on a mobile billboard that would be sent off to rallies in the Miami-Dade area in the lead up to Election Day. The billboard has already hit a few spots including a Trump rally (see more photos below) in one of the most important swing states in the country, and it's fair to say the project will have some type of impact.

"Sometimes artists are too shy to engage directly in the political process,” Hank Willis Thomas said in a press release. “But we believe art can highlight what we have in common, as opposed to what divides us.”

Following the election, Hank Willis Thomas will deliver a keynote talk at Summit at Sea on how the project went.

Check out photos from the project below and learn more about For Freedoms, which stands as the first artist-run super PAC, here. You can also read up on Summit at the Sea here.

An upcoming stop for the mobile billboard will be for the Wynwood Pre-Election Political Art Tour at Macaya Gallery on Monday, Nov. 7 from 7 to 10 p.m. (EST). More details here.
