The Sunrise Kingdom is a visual art event put together by indies black arts publication The Experience Mag, which curates and features over 20 upcoming black & Latinx visual artists. The event will consist of a pop-up exhibition, performances, film, fashion, dance and independent vendors. The purpose of the show is to continue to celebrate the colorful, expressive world of black arts while presenting an opportunity for artists to network and build new relationships.
