Philly Night Out at AAMP and PAFA 

July 13 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Organizer: Campus Philly

Where: AAMP & PAFA (two locations!)


Experience the joint exhibit, Rising Sun: Artists in an Uncertain America, at both museums… for FREE! 

Two historic museums, The African American Museum in Philadelphia (AAMP) and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA), have come together for a transformative exhibition of contemporary art.  

For one night only, college students and recent graduates in the Campus Philly community will get FREE access to BOTH museums to experience the Rising Sun: Artists in an Uncertain America exhibition of new works examining the provocative and timely question: “Is the sun rising or setting on the experiment of American democracy?” 

AAMP and PAFA are just a short walk away from one another, giving you the opportunity to experience both parts of the Rising Sun exhibition in one night with college students and recent grads from all around the Philadelphia region. 

Sign up for this Philly Night Out today! When you visit AAMP or PAFA on July 13, just show your confirmation email for FREE access to the exhibit.
