🌟 Meet Danny Meléndez (he/him/el), one of our newer team member and Education Program Coordinator! 🎉 Danny's passion for art and community drew him to Taller, where he found a space to be part of something greater than himself.

What drew Danny to Taller was being surrounded by other artists and having the chance to be a part of something bigger than himself. Through working with some of the most talented people, he has learned so many ways that this community can come together and make actual change. Daniel's connection with Taller started as a YAP student, where exposure to different art mediums, artists, and great people allowed him to find a home away from home.

Join us in welcoming Danny as he continues to contribute to our Taller family! 🎨🏡

Lo que atrajo a Danny a Taller fue estar rodeado de otros artistas y tener la oportunidad de ser parte de algo más grande que él.
