The Advocates for Equity Committee invites you to attend one or both docent-led tours of this special exhibit, which is jointly sponsored by the African American Museum of Philadelphia (AAMP) and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA).
In this exhibit, 20 artists have created new work responding to the critical question:
Is the sun rising or setting on the experiment of American democracy?
Featured artists engage with the theme of the rising sun in a time when perspectives about human rights, equality, free speech, and other democratic principles are radically disparate. During the tour, participants will be invited to reflect on, challenge, and expand their own understanding of democracy.
PLEASE NOTE: The tour of the AAMP portion of this exhibit is scheduled for April 27th and requires a separate registration.
