20 Artists, 2 Museums, 1 Exhibition

Two historic museums come together for a transformative exhibition of contemporary art. Join the African American Museum in Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts for Rising Sun: Artists in an Uncertain America, an exhibition of new works examining the provocative and timely question: “Is the sun rising or setting on the experiment of American democracy?”


Experience the sweeping exhibition across both museums, located within walking distance of each other in Center City Philadelphia.
