Danny Tepi

Danny Tepi was raised in Puebla and New York. He has had a keen interest and talent for crafts since he was a young child. Growing up with his grandparents, he was immersed in Mexican traditions. One of his earliest memories is of the family coming together to prepare offerings for the altar to honor their departed loved ones.

This workshop is part of our Imagine Mexico: Art Enrichment program, made possible by the West Harlem Development Corporation,  the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, the CUNY Mexican Studies Institute, and Creatives Rebuild New York - Artists Employment Program.
