The public is invited to the special reception celebrating the launch of Anime-Japan, the new art exhibition featuring the work of Carlos Aleman. Meet the artist inside the Sunrise Art Gallery and also enjoy the 2017 City of Sunrise Anime Festival just outside the doors of the gallery. Come early and listen to Aleman give a talk on Otaku Mode at the Sunrise Theater (next to the gallery) at 2:30 p.m. In addition to the art talk and gallery opening, activities include animated movies, origami, manga, calligraphy art, bonsai demonstration, a cosplay costume contest, Japanese food and performance by the Taiko Dojo Drummers.
