2017 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,437

Li participated in the upcoming comic book culture group exhibition, opening June 16 at the new Rush Arts Philly (RAP) gallery in Logan, North Philadelphia, with poster art from her graphic novel project Graffiti in the Grass. In conjunction with the exhibition, Li had the opportunity to facilitate an art workshop at Amalgam Comics and Coffee House, which allowed 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. Funds were used to print and frame the art and to purchase workshop supplies.
