“Now showing in our Castro Dispensary Gallery: Pocho by Danyol Leon. Danyol, who is both an artist and one of our Patient Consultants, creates works of art inspired by his Latinx heritage ‘utilizing Mexican foods as canvases - a visceral attempt to reconnect with the ways of my family. All food items were purchased at local, Latinx owned grocery stores in the Mission.’”
