In conjunction with the exhibition, Li will also have the opportunity to facilitate an art workshop at Amalgam Comics and Coffee House, which will allow her to develop important relationships with the community of comic book nerds of color in Philadelphia and increase visibility for the project in Logan and Kensington.
